The “Best Practice in Memory Services: Learning from across England” report presents the findings from visits to memory services led by Alistair Burns (National Clinical Director for Dementia at NHS England) with help from NHS Improving Quality.
The memory services visited included those with longer waiting times from referral to assessment. The audit discovered some significant successes in improving access times over the past year, and presents a “top ten” of tips for service improvement.
