The MSNAP National Report takes note of the recent findings from the national accreditation programme, including details of awarded accreditations, common areas for improvement, patient and carer themes, and anonymised benchmarked data. The report is available here. The key points from this report include:

  • There continues to be a rise in the number of patients being seen by memory clinics
  • The average waiting time from referral to assessment beginning is 35 days
  • 90% of services are able to offer Cognitive Stimulation Therapy
  • An average of 9.5% of patients seen had registered their interest to participate in research
  • Services who have completed more than 1 cycle of MSNAP are more likely than those only having completed 1 cycle to meet several of the MSNAP standards
