Concern that attempts to reach the national dementia diagnosis aspiration may result in inappropriate dementia diagnoses. Up to 50% of people referred to Memory Assessment Clinics are given a diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

Several factors may influence including type of assessment, atypical dementia, early referrals for symptoms without loss of function


Document outlining strategy for Mild Cognitive Impairment is in preparation with input from Southern SCNs (South-West, Wessex, South East).
