Just 10p a day set aside for dementia patients

7th March 2012

Freedom of Information requests by GP magazine have revealed that some NHS trusts are spending only 10p a day or £38 a year on dementia patients.

The FOI requests showed that 22 trusts spent less than 30p a day on dementia patients while at the top end of spending one trust, NHS Barnsley, spent £800 a year. A Department of Health spokesman said yesterday: "It is up to local areas to decide how to fund dementia services but we have made clear that it should be a priority."
