Report marks progress in first year of dementia challenge

Report marks progress in first year of dementia challenge:
The report also identifies shared themes across the work of the three champion groups, reflects on what they have learnt so far, and sets out how they will work together to sustain and accelerate progress.

Secretary of state for health Jeremy Hunt has also announced that NHS England has set the first ever national ambition to improve dementia diagnosis rates. The plans aim to see two-thirds of people with dementia identified and given appropriate support by 2015, an increase from 39% in 2010 and the current average of about 45%.
