Diagnosis gap of over 22,000 people forecast in Wessex by 2014/15. Difficult to ascertain consistency and quality of dementia diagnosis across region.

Telephone and online surveys conducted with practice managers, GPs and patient focus groups to gather data on pathway, level of support provided to patients and carers, and identify barriers to diagnosis across in primary care.

Outcome

Surveys in progress; formal outcomes pending. Will develop toolkit of practice to be used in General Practice. Will facilitate common standards for screening and clinical assessment. Significant collaboration across agencies in Wessex is involved.
