Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 27 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government, on average, how many people does a post-diagnostic dementia link worker support.

Answered by: Maureen Watt 18 October 2016

This information is not collected or held centrally.

Integration Joint Boards are responsible for commissioning dementia services, including post-diagnostic services, in their area. Responsibility for the delivery of those services remains with the statutory body tasked with leading the service in each area and this is determined locally.
