Headline report from the Ministerial Group on Dementia Research.



The Ministerial Advisory Group on Dementia Research, chaired by Paul Burstow, M.P., Minister of State for Care Services, has been working over the last 18 months on proposals to increase the volume, quality and impact of dementia research.

The Advisory Group has now completed its work and produced its final Headline Report, with a detailed ‘Route map for dementia research’. The Map provides a comprehensive set of agreed actions, with clear timelines. Progress against these actions will be assessed at a final meeting of the Advisory Group in 12 months time.
