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.
