NICE | February 2020 | NICEimpact dementia
Around 460,000 people in England are diagnosed with dementia. And it’s estimated that an additional 200,000 people are undiagnosed. The latest report from NICE highlights progress made by the health and care system in implementing NICE guidance. We recognise that change can sometimes be challenging and may require pathway reconfiguration. Additional resources such as training and new equipment may also be required.
We work with partners including NHS England and NHS Improvement, Local Government Association, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, the Care Providers Alliance and Public Health England to support these changes, and we also look for opportunities to make savings by reducing ineffective practice (Source: NICE).
