Dementia

This hub is for commissioners, providers and stakeholders to better understand health intelligence to improve services and achieve the best outcomes for local communities

Better access to data and information leads to better decisions. The Dementia Intelligence Network (DIN) will bring together data already collected about dementia. We are working to turn the data into knowledge and intelligence that can be used by commissioners when making decisions about dementia services.
