A SHEFFIELD health trust has the second-highest dementia diagnosis rate in the country, according to new research.

The study by The Alzheimer’s Society found that Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust had a 64 per cent diagnosis rate in 2012, compared to the national average of 40 per cent.

The trust says receiving an earlier diagnosis means patients’ families can access support more quickly.
