The Dementia Prevalence Calculator has been revised and updated for 2014-15 and presents an opportunity for all health communities to gain a better understanding of their local estimated prevalence of dementia in the community, and among people living in local care homes.
The tool enables General Practices and commissioners to establish a baseline by which to set and work toward local quantified ambitions for improvement in diagnosis rates, as set out in NHS Mandate, and inform local joint strategic planning, commissioning, and service redesign and improvement.
Access the Calculator
The dementia prevalence calculator is accessible to registered users including GP practice staff, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Area and Regional Teams and other approved stakeholder organisations at https://www.primarycare.nhs.uk/.
