Dementia Care: Implementation Guide and Resources (NHS England / NHS RightCare)

Summary

NHS England has published an implementation guide / information pack, and other resources, on dementia care. The guide covers the assessment, diagnosis and post-diagnostic care of people living with dementia (and their carers), drawing together advice from NICE and other sources.

The resource pack, taken as a whole, is said to support NHS England’s operational and contracting guidance, with the following aims:

  1. Increasing the proportion of patients diagnosed with dementia who will actually start treatment within six weeks from the date of their referral.
  2. Improving the quality of post-diagnostic support / treatment for people with dementia, and for their families or carers.
  3. Helping to transform dementia care, by clarifying the relevance of the guidance supplied here for commissioners, service providers and local Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs).
