GPs should be incentivised to check memory problems, says dementia czar


Are we really going here again? Our little corner shop of medicine has one of the highest dementia pick up rates in the county because... we have an old population, people tell us about their memory problems and we assess, diagnose and treat where we can. Like any other disease. Extra money isn't going to make much of a difference to this. In fact is hasn't. No different to if someone presented with another potential diagnosis. It's called medicine.
