Following a dementia diagnosis, patients should receive information on local services and access to relevant advice and support as set out in the guidance ’After diagnosis of dementia: what to expect from health and care services’, which is available at the following link:

We will set out plans for dementia in England for the next 10 years later this year, which will focus on the health and care needs of people living with dementia and their carers, including diagnosis, risk reduction and prevention and research.
