Dementia prevalence calculator and supporting tools

Dementia is a major and growing challenge for both health and social care.

It is increasingly recognised that care and support can be improved for people with dementia, their families and carers. CCGs have taken the first steps to improving diagnosis and care for people with dementia by setting out an ambition for the proportion of people diagnosed as having dementia and receiving care and support by March 2015.

To help achieve this NHS England has created a suite of tools to enable individual GPs, practices and CCGs to improve diagnosis, care and support for people with dementia and their families.
