Alzheimer’s Society comment:

Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society:

‘I am pleased to see this recognition of dementia as a key issue for the NHS in 2015. With fewer than 60 per cent of people receiving a timely diagnosis, lack of appropriate support and often extended hospital stays, we have a way to go to cost effectively support the most vulnerable in society.’
