GP practices need to update Calculating Quality Reporting Service (CQRS) manually to claim for the number of patients who have received an assessment for dementia during the past financial year. The deadline for GP practices to record their activity on dementia diagnosis / case-finding during the financial year 2013/14 has been extended to June 16th 2014. There will be no facility to amend payments after that date; all funds will have been distributed.
