Extreme regional variation in dementia diagnosis rates

Extreme regional variation in dementia diagnosis rates

NEW DATA on the rates of dementia diagnosis in the UK shows wide variation between areas with, for example, 31.6% of people with dementia being diagnosed in the East Riding of Yorkshire and 75.4% in Islington.

The proportion of people with dementia who have a formal diagnosis is now 46%, compared with 43% in 2011. Alzheimer’s Society estimates that there are 428,000 people in the UK who are living with dementia but haven’t been diagnosed.

“The small improvement in the overall rate of dementia diagnosis is good news, but the extreme variation we see across the country is unacceptable,” Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt said. “It’s time for the worst performing local areas to wake up to the dementia time bomb we are all facing. While many areas do excellent work, the worst is diagnosing just one third of people with dementia - delaying and preventing them from accessing vital treatment and causing unnecessary suffering.”
