Description

“We need all NHS funded care to be as good as the best, from diagnosis through to after care, and both in and outside the hospitals.” Simon Stevens, Chief Executive Officer, NHS England

Dementia is a growing challenge and one of the most important health and care issues facing the world. In England alone it is estimated that around 676,000 people have dementia. The likelihood of developing dementia roughly doubles every five years after the age of 65. As the population ages and people live for longer the economic cost associated with the disease is set to triple by 2040. There current cost, £23 billion a year, is more than the cost of cancer, heart disease and stroke.

In the Five Year Forward View NHS England made a commitment to provide consistent and improved care for people with dementia and their carers across England. Since then, there has been a significant improvement in the proportion of patients being assessed for dementia on admission to hospital and an increase in the national dementia diagnosis rate.

Featured on the 2020 Challenge on Dementia Implementation Plan, NHS England launched the “Well Pathway for Dementia, a 5-year transformation implementation plan focused on five areas from the patient journey: preventing, diagnosing, living, supporting and dying well. This national framework is aiming to act as a vehicle to deliver the commitment to make measurable improvement in the quality of care and support for people with dementia and to increase public awareness.

Dementia 2017: Managing Demand, Improving Care will provide you with the opportunity to explore through practical sessions from leading organisations how we can work together to drive improvement for patients and make England the best country in the world to live with dementia.
