Dementia: Post Diagnosis Support Service (Alzheimer’s Society)

Decision Maker: Integrated Commissioning Board

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Service review / Grant agreement


Consideration was given to a report of the Director of Commissioning seeking approval of the continuation of the Post Diagnostic Dementia service provided by the Alzheimer’s Society and extend the current NHS grant funded arrangements for a further 2 years from the 1st April 2021 to the 31st March 2023.


Alternatives Considered

To not provide the service would leave the residents of HMR with no access to dementia post diagnostic support services.  Extending beyond March 2023 would incur additional costs.



That approval be given to extend the current Grant funded arrangements for a further two years from the 1 April 2021 to the 31March 2023 at the value detailed within the submitted report.


Reason for Resolution

The service supports the CCG and RBC to deliver its priorities for dementia in line with the GM project Dementia United and priorities identified locally by the local Dementia Partnership steering group.
