No formal assessment has yet been made. NHS England and NHS Improvement continue to monitor the monthly diagnosis rate and are analysing trends at regional and sustainability and transformation partnership level to aid targeted recovery efforts. We will set out plans for dementia in England for the next 10 years later this year, including the specific health and care needs of people living with dementia and their carers and dementia diagnoses.
