Dementia care across North Central London shining example of best practice

North Central London (NCL) has been identified as one of only three areas in England delivering best practice  dementia care, the other two are; West Yorkshire and Harrogate STP and Birmingham and Solihull STP.

The Prime Minister's Challenge on Dementia is for England to be the best country in the world for dementia care and support, for people with dementia and their carers / families to live. Part of this challenge is to identify those with dementia.  North Central London are in the top 5 areas with the highest dementia diagnosis rates in the country.

Enfield Care Home Assessment Team and Camden and Islington’s Home Treatment Team have both been selected as examples of best practice care in dementia care. On Monday 29 April Professor Alastair Burns, NHS England and NHS Improvements National Clinical Director for Dementia and Older People’s Mental Health, visited NCL and talked to the teams to hear about their work.
