Devon dementia diagnosis action plan

This action plan outlines work underway to achieve improved, responsive and quality services for people with dementia and their carers across Devon.

Key work areas include:

  • A GP clinical lead for dementia was appointed in July 2010. Additional pump priming resource from the SHA has enabled GP protected time to help deliver improved diagnosis rates.
  • A localised Map of Medicine and a memory assessment pathway have been developed to improve awareness, knowledge and a clear pathway for dementia diagnosis and care.
  • A GP education programme has been completed for 107 practices
