Three Models of Dementia Assessment and Diagnosis (NHS England / NHS IQ)


Three different models of diagnosis and care for people with dementia have been cited by NHS England as examples of good practice. These schemes are based at Gnosall in Stafford, Northumberland, and Rotherham and Doncaster. Indicative costs and other considerations involved with the three alternative models are provided, including: (i) benefits for patients and carers, (ii) insights into developing such services, and (iii) techniques for CCGs to review local services with a view to quality improvement.

  1. The Gnosall Surgery scheme is a primary care managed service with specialist outreach.
  2. The Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust Memory Protection Services for Sunderland, Gateshead and South Tyneside Locality scheme is a specialist care led service with primary care support.
  3. The Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust scheme is an entirely specialist led service.
