Britain is bottom of Euro league table - dementia

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
The UK has come bottom of a league table comparing dementia care in European countries, with an average time lag of two years and eight months between signs of Alzheimer’s disease being suspected by carers, and the medical diagnosis being made.

Delays were more than twice as long in Britain as in Italy and Germany, and nine months longer than in Poland.

Ministers will highlight the failings this week as the Department of Health launches a radio and television campaign to encourage those who suspect dementia to see their doctor.
