    A rating of ‘inadequate’ from CQC can mean the care home goes out of business, while an ‘outstanding’ one can do wonders for business and morale. But do CQC ratings really reflect the standards of care delivered?

  • Doctors miss opportunities for earlier diagnosis of dementia

    Doctors miss opportunities for earlier diagnosis of dementia

    24.03.17 A research project in which older people with memory problems were encouraged to consult their GP failed to achieve earlier diagnoses of dementia. University College London (UCL) researchers arranged for selected GP practices to send patients aged 70 or over a personally signed letter and information leaflets about dementia, resulting in a significant increase in the proportion of patients consulting their GPs with suspected memory difficulties. But the study of more than 14,000 patients in the south-east of England found no corresponding increase in the proportion of patients referred to memory clinics and that opportunities for an early diagnosis of dementia were therefore likely to have been missed. The researchers concluded that empowering patients by writing to them personally with relevant information was “not by itself enough to improve timely access to dementia services.”

  • Dementia still “playing catch-up” with research spending

    Dementia still “playing catch-up” with research spending

    23.03.17 New figures indicate that numbers of dementia researchers across the UK have almost doubled since 2008 as funding to investigate the condition has risen, says a report from Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK), launched at its annual research conference in Aberdeen. But it warns that, while the gap between dementia research and research into other diseases has narrowed, it has still not caught up – for every one dementia scientist, there are now four cancer researchers whereas the ratio was one to six in 2008/9. ARUK’s report, “Keeping pace: progress in dementia research capacity,” is available at www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/keeping-pace. ARUK’s new animation about the impact of dementia and the charity’s progress with research, voiced by actress Pam Ferris, can be found at www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/dementia-research-statistics.
