This report shares the findings from the peer review of memory assessment services which took place in the South West at the start of 2012.
It provides a record of the Peer Review discussions and the common themes which emerged. It attests to considerable progress in the South West to improve access to memory assessment, and post-diagnosis services.
It also highlights for Clinical Commissioning Groups and their local partners innovation, learning, and opportunities for improvement across the diagnosis pathway.
The South West has some of the lowest rates of diagnosis of dementia in England: intelligent and informed commissioning of diagnosis pathways and memory assessment services will drive improvement.
