Charities rally against Scotland’s dementia strategy

Alzheimer’s Research UK has urged the Scottish government to increase research funding following the launch of a national dementia strategy.

In Scotland’s National Dementia Strategy 2017-2020, published on 28 June, the government pledged to support clinical and non-clinical dementia research in Scotland, for example by helping to build connections to UK-wide research institutes and by showcasing examples of dementia research.

The strategy, Scotland’s third, also says the government will continue to support the collaborative efforts of the Scottish Dementia Research Consortium to pool the country’s resources and skills, using this platform to stimulate investment and research into the disease in Scotland.
