The Dementia Profile is designed to improve the availability and accessibility of information on dementia. The data is presented in an interactive tool that allows users to view and analyse it in a user-friendly format. The profile provides a snapshot of dementia care, broken down by geographical area, to help local government and health services improve dementia care.

The profile includes the estimated dementia diagnosis rate, which shows the number of people with a formal diagnosis of dementia as a percentage of those estimated to have the disease. A timely diagnosis helps those living with dementia, their carers and healthcare staff to improve health and care outcomes as outlined within the Prime Minister’s challenge (Source: PHE)
