Abstract

Worldwide there are an estimated 36.5 million people with dementia, a number that is expected to rise to 115 million people by 2050. In high-income countries, only 20 to 50 per cent of people with dementia have a formal diagnosis, with the diagnosis rate in England and Wales currently at 43.8 per cent. Many people are also diagnosed late, often at a time of crisis such as an emergency hospital admission.
