3rd MSNAP National Report published

9 January 2015

The third MSNAP National Report has been published which looks at key themes which emerged in the 2013-2014 data and also compares data over the last 5 years. Comparisons between services which have completed more than 1 cycle of MSNAP have also been made. MSNAP member services are able to benchmark their compliance with both overall standards and type 2 standards against other memory services. They are also able to benchmark their waiting times between referral and initial assessment.

Commonly unmet standards have been identified in the report and used to form national recommendations for memory services.

The report can be downloaded on our resources page.
