star this property answer text <p>The Government’s mandate to NHS England requires NHS England to deliver the actions set out in the Challenge on Dementia 2020 Implementation Plan. The Implementation Plan envisages that:</p><p>“In every part of the country people with dementia having equal access to diagnosis as for other conditions, with an expectation that the national average for an initial assessment should be 6 weeks following a referral from a GP (where clinically appropriate), and that no one should be waiting several months for an initial assessment of dementia.”</p><p>We have made great strides in delivering the Challenge: this includes being above NHS England’s target for two thirds of people living with dementia to receive a formal diagnosis. Our focus now is on reducing the variation of local diagnosis rates and NHS England have programmes in place to further improve the quality and timeliness of diagnosis.</p> more like this
