Dementia Diagnosis

The NHS Commissioning Board has recently rolled out a scheme offering to pay GP Practices £55 for each additional patient diagnosed with dementia.
This is to enable practices to ‘earn back’ some of the funding that has been taken away from other areas. Wells Health Centre have decided not to take part in this scheme. We want our patients to be absolutely clear that our only motivation when making diagnoses (such as dementia) is the best interests and care of our patients


As Katherine Murphy (chief executive of the Patients Association) put it: “The scheme is a distortion of good medical practice. It is putting a bounty on the head of certain patients. Good GPs will be diagnosing their dementia patients already. This seems to be rewarding poor GPs.”
If you have concerns about your memory or that of someone close to you, we would encourage you to discuss this with a clinician as we always have done.
