Annual data from the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) on the number of registered patients:
The vision and strategic objectives of this 10 year strategy were produced in partnership by Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, Cardiff Council, Vale of Glamorgan Council, local partners from the third sector, as well as through talking to people with dementia, their carers, staff and service providers about their experiences as part of the Dementia Health Needs Assessment 2017.
The 10 year time frame allows for long-term planning. This is especially important when planning housing and hospital provision which takes a substantial time to develop and implement. The Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Dementia Strategy:
This health needs assessment aims to systematically review the needs of people with dementia and their carers and to inform a refreshed Dementia Strategy for Cardiff and the Vale. It includes the epidemiology of dementia, a summary of the evidence base, examples of best practice, a summary of existing local services, and qualitative evaluation which explored in detail the views of people with dementia, carers, and professionals.
