Dementia Assessment and Referral

This section of the website provides information on Dementia Assessment and Referral data collection which has been made mandatory since April 2013 for all NHS funded trusts providing acute services.

Note: From November 2013 onwards, data will be made public on the NHS England website and in UNIFY on the same day and time so that these statistics are equally available to all users. This is in compliance with the UK Statistics Authority’s Code of Practice for Official Statistics (January 2009).


This data collection reports on the number and proportion of patients aged 75 and over admitted as an emergency for more than 72 hours who have been identified as potentially having dementia, who are appropriately assessed and, where appropriate, referred on to specialist services in England.
