NHS England has a commitment to increase the dementia diagnosis rates in England by March 2015, so that two-thirds of people with dementia receive a formal diagnosis. The Quality Outcomes Framework (QOF) subset 2014/15 dementia data extraction supports this national initiative to improve diagnosis rates for the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge. This “Recorded Dementia Diagnoses, April – August 2014” document is the latest data published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre.
“The HSCIC has been asked by the Secretary of State for Health to collect dementia diagnosis data on a monthly basis from general practice clinical systems. Data for April to August 2014 were collected throughout September 2014”.
