Revised Dementia Plan (Department of Health)

Summary

The document presents the Department of Health’s revised implementation plan for “Living Well with Dementia: a National Dementia Strategy”, which was published in February 2009. It updates the previous implementation plan for the Strategy, which was published in July 2009.

The direct costs of dementia for the NHS and Social Care are approximately £8.2bn annually.

The main purpose of this revised implementation plan is to define for health and social care localities and their delivery partners the following:

  1. The Department of Health’s role and its priorities during 2010/2011 for supporting local delivery (and local accountability) for the implementation of “Living Well with Dementia: a National Dementia Strategy”.
  2. How the Strategy works with the new vision for the future of health and care as set out in the White Paper “Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS”.
  3. How the Strategy works with the consultation document “Liberating the NHS: Transparency in outcomes – a framework for the NHS”.
