Wiltshire CCG have run a pilot scheme based around Salisbury where all GP practices were offered training in dementia diagnosis and prescribing Donepezil, supported by local mental health teams. The scheme focusses on non-complicated dementia in people aged 75+ and has now been rolled out across Wiltshire.

Outcome

Nearly all practices are engaged.  Reduced waiting times at memory clinics.
