CQC – New Dementia Pathway

A new dementia pathway has been developed by Primary Care in conjunction with the LMC, Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust (LPFT) and other care providers. It is for over 65yr olds presenting with symptoms suggestive of dementia and is intended to act as a guide to navigate the practitioner through the patient journey from presenting symptoms, to diagnosis and post-diagnostic care and support.

You can view and download the new pathway via this link: GP_Dementia_Pathway_-_080421.pdf (lincolnshirecommunityhealthservices.nhs.uk) . An accompanying guide is also available here.

Further detail can be found on the LMC website in the form of an educational webinar covering the topic and supporting information.
