This document presents the Department of Health's revised, outcomes focused implementation plan for 'Living well with dementia: a National Dementia Strategy', which was published in February 2009. The key purpose of this revised implementation plan is to set out for health and social care localities and their delivery partners:

  • the Department of Health’s role and its priorities during 2010/11 for supporting local delivery of and local accountability for the implementation of ‘Living Well with Dementia – A National Dementia Strategy’ ; 
  • the Strategy’s fit with the new vision for the future of health and social care as set out in the White Paper Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS3; and
  • the fit with the consultation document Liberating the NHS: Transparency in outcomes – a framework for the NHS4.

At the heart of this vision is the Government’s commitment to putting patients and the public first; improving health and social care outcomes; ensuring autonomy, accountability, democratic legitimacy and improving efficiency.
