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: NHS England identified an error in the publication of the Dementia Assessment and Referral data collection for Quarter 1 2013/14. Corrected data for Quarter 1 2013/14 were published on 4th June 2014.
Revised data from April 2013 to January 2014 were published on 7th May 2014, and are now included in the June revision.
The commentary for each quarter has not been revised as the changes from both these revisions have small impact on national figures.


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.
