Monthly announcement of national dementia diagnosis rate

National dementia diagnosis rates (DDR) for September and October 2018 can be found on the NHS Digital website.

Commissioners are asked to cascade this information to member practices and to continue working with practices reporting low diagnosis rates. The dementia CCG IAF support offer can be found on the NHS England website. Practices with a DDR of ≥66.7% are encouraged to continue to improve the care of people with dementia and their families. CCGs are asked to check their DDR and act to maintain, or improve, their rate to support NHS England’s business plan priority to maintain a minimum of two thirds diagnosis rates for people with dementia.
