Date lodged: 22 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what waiting lists there are for post-diagnostic support for people with dementia, broken down by integration joint board.

Answered by: Maureen Watt 11 July 2016

Information will be published later this year on comparative performance across Scotland on the national LDP Standard on post-diagnostic support for dementia. This will show how many people newly diagnosed between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2015 received a minimum of a year’s worth of post diagnostic support.

Part of the mandatory national data set will also show how long people have waited after their formal dementia diagnosis to begin receiving their post-diagnostic service. This information will be available at NHS board, not integration joint board, level.
