Kobierskij, Bogdan 


This work reviews dementia policy in the UK using the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge 2020 Implementation Plan and the Phase 1 Review of the plan provided by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). The proposed Implementation Plan is aimed at making the UK the best country in the world for dementia care and research. In order to achieve this goal, the plan concentrates on the four key aspects of the new dementia policy, which are risk reduction, health and care, awareness and social action, and research. This policy report is based on data provided by the DHSC and Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK). Here, the Implementation Plan and the Phase 1 Review are compared to illustrate the progress achieved so far, as well as to suggest recommendations. Whilst the commitments of the plan have been partially achieved, improvement is still required, including but not limited to improved risk awareness and patent protection policies.
