    MPs and peers launch inquiry into dementia diagnosis rates

    Diagnosis rates of dementia have increased by just two per cent to 43 per cent in the past year. This means most people with the condition are still being left without vital support and treatment.

    There is a link to a Government Survey which is worth completing.

    This is all well and good increasing diagnostic rates but it isn`t good if the services are not in place to support them post diagnostically.

    Good morning Mrs Smith. you have dementia, off you go now and come and see me if you have any problems in the future.

    We haven`t got the services for the people we know have dementia today..

    Hello Everybody & Danny , Yes it is good that the M P 's etc are having this Inquiry but as Danny says ( quite rightly ) good "Support Services etc " are needed after the Diagnosis for the Sufferer & the Family also ( or Carer / Friend ) ( My Words not Danny 's ! ) Agree with what Danny said tho !

    Some times feel that my Dad has very long "Appt Gaps " at the M Clinic he went in Nov 2011 & will not go untill 2012 ( tho gess that 's normal ? ) Sorry for change in subject !

    Just hope some good comes out of the Inquiry & things improve for Sufferer 's & the Families

    Will there be any News etc ( report ) at the end of the Inquiry ? .... Will watch this Space !

    From Grove x x
