About the programme

The Care Co-ordination in the Community Improvement Programme was commissioned by the Scottish Government to improve access to high quality care co-ordination for people with dementia and carers in the community. Focus on Dementia, part of the Improvement Hub (ihub) at Healthcare Improvement Scotland, were the national lead for the programme on behalf of the Scottish Government, and worked in partnership with Alzheimer Scotland.

Taking a whole systems and pathway approach from diagnosis to end of life, the programme aimed to:

  • improve care co-ordination for people with dementia and their carers
  • develop and evaluate a model of effective care co-ordination for people with dementia and their carers, and
  • share learning across NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Scotland and further afield.
