Dementia 2020
Roadmap to Delivery
30th of April 2019
Royal Society of Medicine, London
In February 2015 the Prime Minister launched his Challenge on Dementia 2020, which set out to build on the achievements of the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia 2012-2015.

The Implementation Plan published on 6th March 2016 outlines how the 50 commitments set out in the Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia 2020 will be met, ensuring that England becomes the world-leader in dementia care, research and awareness by 2020.

The plan provides more detail on how these commitments, across the four core themes of risk reduction, health and care, awareness and social action, and research will be met. Developed in partnership with a range of stakeholders, including people with dementia and carers across England, it explains how the commitments in the 2020 challenge will be delivered. It identifies the priority actions within each theme, and indicates which organisations are responsible for delivery.

Many of the actions can only be met through the joint efforts of multiple organisations, and for the last 3 years, Govconnect’s Dementia 2020 series of conferences have allowed government departments, arms-length bodies, the NHS and local authorities, research institutions, and the charity and voluntary sector to hear from senior leaders from many of the key partner organisations involved in the 2020 Challenge.

Though the underlying aims in the strategy are shared, clearly implementing a programme of such size and scope is complex, some actions lay the foundations for others, some may need to be altered or amended in future years to take into account funding allocations, emerging and planned research into science and medicine, and best practice in both clinical and social care.

Now the most established annual Dementia conference in England – the Govconnect 2020 series now in it's 4th year has provided the platform for discussion to shape a better policy in order to better deliver the commitments of the Dementia 2020 Implementation Plan.

Dementia 2020 - Roadmap to Delivery follows the strategy into its final year and will provide a recap of progress to date in realising the aims and objectives of the challenge. Following the 2018 review delegates will learn finalised plans from regular series contributors such as the Alzheimer’s Society Department of Health, NHS England & Public Health England amongst other stakeholders.
