Attitudes of GPs were assessed in Portsmouth (n=76), Dorset (178), and compared to NAO data (n=1001). More than 80% felt that more could be done to improve QoL in dementia. GPs in Wessex felt 66-71% of families would prefer to be told about dementia (vs. NAO 36%). Only 16-26% felt managing dementia was frustrating (NA: 74%), but fewer than 50% felt that there were satisfactory services anywhere.
Results guided further local educational events and enabled service management.
