The government has unveiled plans to improve dementia diagnosis rates across the country.
The move comes after a report showed that current diagnosis rates are "shockingly low" despite the prime minister's Dementia Challenge campaign.
New plans announced by health secretary Jeremy Hunt aim to see two-thirds of people living with cognitive impairment diagnosed and supported by 2015.
Previous figures show that the current average is just 45 per cent.
"For too long diagnosis rates have been shockingly low, leaving too many people living in the dark trying to cope with this terrible condition undiagnosed, unable to get the help they need and deserve," Mr Hunt stated.
Local Clinical Commissioning Groups will lead the drive. They will receive support from the NHS and set up additional memory services where required.
It is estimated that 800,000 people have dementia in the UK at present, but that number is set to soar to 1.7 million by 2051.
