NHS Digital collects data on the number of patients with a recorded dementia diagnosis in their clinical record and report this on a monthly basis, so that the National Health Service, general practitioners and commissioners can make informed choices to plan their services. The latest data for October 2020 shows that that the Dementia Diagnosis Rate for Eastbourne was 67.2%. The data is available at the following link:
