NHS England has a commitment to improve dementia diagnosis rates. NHS England has published a guide to help GPs perform better on the timely diagnosis of dementia and to offer advice on post-diagnostic support for the person with the diagnosis or their carer(s), including emotional support and practical task-based help and specific interventions such as cognitive stimulation therapy. This broad-ranging guide is also described as the new Dementia Toolkit.
