Prime Minister announces National Dementia Challenge
26/03/2012 23:52:00

Great to see the Prime Minister announce measures to make the UK a world leader in dementia care and research today and in particular a pledge to double dementia research by 2015.

I lost my father to Alzheimer's so this is an issue close to my heart but it is also one that affects a growing number of people - one quarter of hospital beds are occupied by someone with dementia and in less than ten years, as we all live longer lives, the number of people with the condition will be over one million.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
