Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia – improvements to health and care

In this blog Alistair talks about one strand of the Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia.

Key points

The challenge covers three main areas:

  • driving improvements in health and care
  • creating dementia friendly communities
  • improvements in research

In driving improvements in health and care there are five things thought to be particularly important:

  • increasing diagnosis rates
  • the dementia CQUIN
  • an innovation prize for NHS staff looking at better ways to help people with dementia
  • dementia care and support compact
  • looking at local information

    On the changes of prescription page I see no mention of antipsychotics. Especially toy oujnger patients with long term conditions such as schizophrenia, bi-polar, bi-polarmanic, obsessional disorders. What is the position here, as there are far too few hospital beds or other places of safety sh ould a patient have an acute episode.
