Introduction

Welcome to the dementia profile. This profile has been developed to support the work of the Dementia Intelligence Network (DIN) in providing health intelligence with which to inform the provision of care of people in England who have dementia.

This tool provides indicators arranged into six data domains:

These profiles are at Clinical Commissioning Group and Local Authority geographies and give local commissioners and providers the information they need to benchmark current practice against other CCGs, local authorities and England. Data and metadata are available online and as a download document.
