We collect and publish data about people with dementia at each GP practice, so that the NHS (GPs and commissioners) can make informed choices about how to plan their services around their patients needs.
This publication includes a dementia diagnosis rate indicator. As not everyone with dementia has a formal diagnosis, this statistic compares the number of people thought to have dementia with the number of people diagnosed with dementia, aged 65 and over.
Please access the diagnosis rate indicator through the online interactive tool or the documents below.
***Data collected was expanded in November 2017 to include information on prescription of antipsychotic medication. This led to collecting October 2017 data again, causing some data items to be reported differently for this month for some areas. The November 2017 publication results should be used going forward***
