Dementia CQUIN 2016/17

Key changes to arrangements for the dementia CQUIN for 2016/17 are as follows:

  • The national dementia CQUIN will not be continuing into 2016/17

  • The national team have developed templates for two local CQUINs which CCGs and providers are being encouraged to consider for possible use. They are provided as a suggested way forward and they can be adapted for local use as required.

  • One local CQUIN template (Follow this link) focuses on Discharge planning and follow up

  • The second CQUIN template (Follow this link) focuses on meeting the recommendations of John’s Campaign.  For more information on John’s Campaign click here.

  • Requirements for staff training in dementia and provision of carer support are being added to the standard contract for acute hospitals from 2016/17.

  • Reporting against FAIR (Find Assess Investigate Refer) will continue via UNIFY.

    More information about the proposed local CQUINs is available in the webinar below, recorded on 10th December 2015.  The slides used in this webinar are also available to access here for the national CQUIN and Here for the Local CQUIN.
