Dementia sufferers not known to GPs

9th December 2008

Information obtained by the Liberal Democrat Party has shown that more than two thirds of people with dementia are "not known" to their GPs.

The research drew comparisons between the estimated number of people with the condition in each primary care trust with GP's registers for disease. The figures revealed that 95% of primary care trusts had less "than half of the registered dementia patients expected" and "fifteen PCTs have more than 5,000 sufferers in their area who are not on a GP disease register".
