Dementia Assessment and Referral 2015-16

This section of the website provides information on the Dementia Assessment and Referral data collection for the period April 2015 to March 2016.


This data collection reports on the number and proportion of patients aged 75 and over admitted as an emergency for more than 72 hours in England who have been identified as potentially having dementia, who are appropriately assessed and who have a care plan on discharge which meets agreed standards. This is described with the acronym FAIRI (Find, Assess/Investigate, Refer/Inform).
The dementia data collection has been in place since 2013/14 with the focus on acute trusts, but was extended from April 2015 to reflect changes to the 2015/16 CQUIN[1] to include community service providers as well as acute trusts for the Find and Assess/Investigate indicators and provide an over view at CCG level for the Refer/Inform indicator.

The response from CCGs has been deemed too low quality both in terms of coverage and completeness to report. The response from Community Service Providers was also low initially, but deemed sufficiently complete for those organisations responding so these results have been published.
