In early 2015, the Department of Health will publish its vision for the future of dementia policy in England. This follows on from the Prime Minister’s 3-year dementia challenge, which ends in March. The document will set a strategic direction for domestic dementia policy to 2020.
The Department of Health is engaging with a range of stakeholders to collect initial evidence and views to inform the vision, through workshops and meetings, including focus groups with people with dementia and carers. The Department is working with the newly formed Dementia Advisory Group who are providing advice to help inform the development of the dementia vision.
