Mapping the Dementia Gap

Mapping the dementia gap produced by Tesco, Alzheimer's Society (UK) and Alzheimer Scotland puts figures on the gap between the number of people estimated to be living with dementia (both diagnosed and undiagnosed) across the UK, including NI, and the number that have received a diagnosis of dementia based on the QoF dementia register. A fact sheet outlining dementia diagnosis rates specifically for NI in 2014 is available from the Alzheimer’s Society (UK) website. Equivalent figures are not available for ROI.
