  • The work to deliver the National Dementia Strategy, published in February 2009, has already achieved a great deal. However, the number of people with dementia is increasing and diagnosis rates are low. These issues, combined with a lack of awareness and skills needed to support people with dementia and their carers, make clear we need to do more The Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia, launched on 26th March sets out renewed ambition to go further and faster, building on progress made through the National Dementia Strategy, to secure greater improvements in dementia care and research so that people with dementia, their carers and families get the services and support they need. The Challenge is an ambitious programme of work designed to make a real difference to the lives of people with dementia and their families and carers. It will increase diagnosis rates, raise awareness and understanding and double funding for research by 2015.
  • Since the launch of the Challenge, the Champion Groups have made significant progress across all three strands of the challenge, including:   Driving improvements in health and care NHS England (NHSE) announced the first ever national ambition to improve dementia diagnosis rates, to two-thirds by 2015. There is a new Directed Enhanced Service for take up by GPs to reward practices for having a pro-active, case finding approach to the assessment of patients who may be showing the early signs of dementia. Public Health England has named dementia within one of its seven high-level priorities for 2013/14, in recognition of the key role public health can play in the delivery of better dementia care and support. Made £54m available to the NHS to support dementia diagnosis in hospital ( CQUIN ) Dementia Friendly Communities Launch of a new Dementia Friends scheme which will deliver awareness sessions to 1 million people with the aim of breaking down the barriers between people with the condition and their local communities Over 50 cities, towns and villages are taking local action to become dementia friendly more than doubling our original ambition of 20 cities, towns and villages signed up to be dementia-friendly by 2015.
  • Launched a dementia education pioneer programme with 21 schools across the country who are testing different approaches to educating children and young people about dementia. The findings from this pioneer group are being written up to be made available to all schools who want to participate from the forthcoming Autumn term. Launched a national advertising campaign to raise awareness and reduce the stigma attached to dementia and encourage people to contact their GP if they experience the symptoms of dementia. Better research   Made £22 million available to 21 pioneering research projects to boost dementia diagnosis rates and trial ground-breaking treatments. £9.6m being provided by MRC for a pilot study involving 8,000 volunteers, to be expanded over time to scan the brains of 100,000 Biobank participants. Provision of £13m for social science research proposals in preventing dementia
  • In terms of next steps the three Champion Groups have highlighted three key areas for their work going forward: Greater collaboration: Across the three Champion Groups on shared themes and with new delivery partners to embed early successes, continue to build momentum and sustain improvements over the longer term. Reaching out further: Encouraging other and more diverse sections of the community to play a role in the drive towards dementia friendly communities. Influencing the wider system: Working with NHSE, PHE, HEE, CQC and others to influence and support their work programmes. Exploring the opportunity to work with a number of exemplar Health and Wellbeing Boards and to disseminate learning at national level. RESTRICTED - MANAGEMENT
