National dementia diagnosis rates (DDR) for November 2018 have now been published and can be found on the NHS Digital website.
This publication includes the rate of dementia diagnosis. As not everyone with dementia has a formal diagnosis, this statistic compares the number of people thought to have dementia with the number of people diagnosed with dementia, aged 65 and over.
This publication is the first to include the count of people with a diagnosis of dementia who have had a medication review in the preceding 12 months.
