National dementia diagnosis rates and monthly workbook published

National dementia diagnosis rates for November 2016 can be found alongside a general update on national priorities in a letter to CCGs from Alistair Burns, NHS England’s national clinical director for dementia.

Commissioners are asked to cascade this information to member practices, and to continue working with practices which report relatively low diagnosis rates to access support from NHS England’s intensive support team. Those practices which have already achieved the target diagnosis rate are encouraged to continue to improve the care of people with dementia and their families. NHS England’s dementia diagnosis monthly workbook also contains the dementia diagnosis at CCG and GP level.
