#Dementiachallengers are impatient for positive change.
It is obviously important to come up with the best solutions and for limited resources to be spent in the most effective way. What do YOU think about a proposal to screen over 75s for dementia as part of their normal GP appointments? Or at least this is how I understand it, but there seems to be some uncertainty about exactly what IS proposed.

Yep. That’s us. #dementiachallengers: diplomatic and polite… and impatient.
REALLY looking forward to seeing what our talented young writer, Beth Britton (@Bethyb1886) makes of this one in due course. She certainly had some candid views recently on the proposal to change the name of dementia, triggered by another lively discussion that took place on Twitter.
