The UK’s National Health Service has failed to prioritise dementia services in the country as promised in the five-year National Dementia Strategy, according to a report.

The National Audit Office (NAO) report said the dementia strategy was comprehensive and ambitious and achieving the planned transformation in services will be challenging, according to the BBC.

The strategy, expected to cost nearly £2bn ($3,259m) over ten years, includes plans that will boost early diagnosis, and better patient and carer support.

The NAO report said the health service has failed to make dementia a national priority in the NHS Operating Framework.
