Public Health England launches dementia comparison tool

Saturday 16 January 2016

Public Health England (PHE) has published a new Dementia Profile that allows, for the first time, tailored comparison between local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups in England through a single interactive online platform.

The Profile enables sharing of key information between localities, such as number of people with dementia and their age, the number who have received an NHS health check, the number with depression and emergency hospital admissions data.

The idea is to help commissioners better fulfil planning objectives by providing the information necessary to identify variation, investigate the reasons for any differences, and ultimately improve outcomes.
