With the Challenge on Dementia 2020 close to completion, this timely symposium offers an invaluable opportunity to assess the progress made in implementation, consider the priorities for the second phase, and examine the how to strengthen local partnership working to improve support and services for people with dementia and their carers.
February 2015 the Prime Minister launched his Challenge on Dementia 2020, which set out to build on the achievements of the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia 2012-2015. The Implementation Plan published on 6th March 2016 outlines how the 50 commitments set out in the Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia 2020 will be met, ensuring that England becomes the world-leader in dementia care, research and awareness by 2020. Dementia 2020 - Roadmap to Delivery follows the strategy into its final year and will provide a recap of progress to date in realising the aims and objectives of the challenge. Following the 2018 review delegates will learn finalised plans from regular series contributors such as the Alzheimer’s Society Department of Health, NHS England & Public Health England amongst other stakeholders.
