Hospital care for people with dementia since lockdown

The National Audit of Dementia (NAD) are currently collecting information on the impact of lockdown since 23 March, on people with dementia and the hospital care that they receive.

The National Audit of Dementia (NAD) is a programme which looks at the care provided to people with dementia in general hospitals in England and Wales. We would like to find out about care that has taken place since lockdown (after 23 March 2020).

If you provide care for a person with dementia this survey is for you to complete. You can use this survey to provide information about a hospital admission for the person with dementia you support OR about a situation where a hospital admission would usually have happened but did not.

We will use the results to compile a current picture of the changes that have taken place in our hospitals and how they affect people with dementia.  We will report a summary of these findings on our website and may use them to write a report for the government or medical journals.

The survey is now open and available here, if you have any queries please contact us at nad@rcpsych.ac.uk.

This survey will be sent to hospital leads for dementia to complete shortly, if you have any queries please contact nad@rcpsych.ac.uk.
