Latest Dementia Assessment and Referral Data: to May 2015 and June 2015 (NHS England)

Summary

Dementia assessment and referral data collection has been mandatory for all NHS funded trusts providing acute services, since April 2013. These statistics indicate the number and proportion of patients aged 75 and older, admitted as an emergency for more than 72 hours and identified as potentially having dementia, and / or delirium.

The purpose behind collecting this information is to (i) improve the identification of older patients with dementia and delirium, (ii) monitor appropriate assessment and (iii) support effective communication between providers and general practice.

Data has been collected from acute trusts and community service providers, although the response from community services providers has so far been relatively low.
