DH pushes ahead with dementia case-finding DES


Is there a validated tool for screening patients at risk of dementia - and one adapted for patients with learning difficulties? If there isn't, will one be developed in time for 31.3.14? I'm retiring because of the Health & Social Care Act on 31.3.13 - but, as the QOF partner, would like to be able to advise my practice before then. My advice before this letter was to not take on the dementia DES: will the funding/terms make it financially viable? They might also reject it on grounds of good patient care...
