Government launches National Dementia Strategy

The U.K. Government has published the National Dementia Strategy, a five-year plan which will cost £150m in its first two years. The plan aims to create a memory clinic in every town and city in England. It also recommends better training for GPs in recognising the early symptoms of dementia. The memory clinics will be run by geriatricians, old-age psychiatrists, neurologists, or GPs with a special interest in dementia.
