No specific estimate has been made. However, between 2012 and 2020, more than one million National Health Service staff and one million social care staff had received basic dementia awareness training. The training needs for relevant staff are set out in the Dementia Training Standards Framework. We will set out plans for dementia in England later this year, which will include training on dementia.
