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
