Summary

These data are published in support of the Dementia Strategy and the Dementia Challenge.

 

The Quality and Outcome Framework (QOF) subset 2014-15 dementia data extraction supports the Prime Minister's Dementia Challenge, within which aims there is an ambition to improve the national diagnosis rate of dementia.

 

The HSCIC has been asked by the Secretary of State for Health to collect dementia diagnosis data on a monthly basis from general practice clinical systems. These are the same data that will be collected later in the year as part of the Quality and Outcomes Framework data 2014-15.

 

These data have been revised and include data for one less practice than originally published.
