star this property answer text <p>No specific assessment has made of the factors involved in decisions to terminate a pregnancy following a diagnosis of Down's Syndrome. Under the 1967 Abortion Act, abortion is legally available where two doctors agree that ‘there is a substantial risk that if the child were born it would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities to be seriously handicapped’. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has published guidance on Termination of Pregnancy for Fetal Abnormality in England, Scotland and Wales, which can be viewed online at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.rcog.org.uk/en/guidelines-research-services/guidelines/termination-of-pregnancy-for-fetal-abnormality-in-england-scotland-and-wales/" target="_blank">https://www.rcog.org.uk/en/guidelines-research-services/guidelines/termination-of-pregnancy-for-fetal-abnormality-in-england-scotland-and-wales/</a></p><p>This guidance assists doctors and other health professionals to support women and their families when a fetal abnormality is diagnosed and to help women to decide, within the bounds of the law, whether or not to have an abortion.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia in the United Kingdom.</p><p>The Challenge on Dementia 2020 sets out the ambition for two thirds of people with dementia to receive a formal diagnosis. This has been achieved and exceeded nationally. Our focus now is on reducing the variation in local diagnosis rates and NHS England have published guidance and put programmes in place to further improve the quality and timeliness of diagnosis across the country.</p><p>For example, the ‘Implementation guide and resource pack for dementia care’ published in July 2017 sets out key recommendations on how services should be configured to provide good quality diagnosis and post-diagnostic care for people with dementia and their carers. It includes key roles and activity in primary care and memory assessment services to facilitate an accurate and timely diagnosis of dementia, while ensuring access to appropriate support following diagnosis. The resource pack is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.england.nhs.uk/mental-health/dementia/implementation-guide-and-resource-pack-for-dementia-care/" target="_blank">https://www.england.nhs.uk/mental-health/dementia/implementation-guide-and-resource-pack-for-dementia-care/</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>
