Using data to improve dementia care in England

Public Health England, January 2016

PHE has published a new Dementia Profile, providing access to local authority and CCG level data across the whole dementia care pathway.  The tool, developed by Public Health England’s (PHE’s) National Dementia Intelligence Network (DIN) , presents a major change in the way dementia data will be used locally.  The profile will enable bespoke comparison between local authorities and CCG’s in England in one, interactive online platform.

The profile shares key information, such as how many people have dementia broken down by area and age; the number of people who have received an NHS health check; the number of people who have depression; emergency hospital admission numbers; and where people with dementia die.
