Dementia pathway project – improving services for patients in Knutsford, Cheshire

09 Oct 2019
NAPC Primary Care Networks in Action Theatre

Patients in Cheshire with dementia are now being diagnosed quicker following a pilot project between a community trust and the local primary care network. Faced with a higher than national average of people over 75, the PCN in Knutsford worked with Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust on a pilot project to improve care. This has led to speeding up the diagnosis for patients, a new local primary care review clinic and greater access to consultants for the most complex and advanced patients.
