East Yorkshire MP, Sir Greg Knight, is one of a number of MP’s backing a nationwide campaign, organised by the Alzheimer’s Society, to improve dementia diagnosis rates across the country.
Sir Greg said: ‘Because of the covid pandemic, over 30,000 people living with dementia have not yet received the diagnosis they need. I am backing the campaign to address this.’
Sir Greg gave his support during Dementia Action Week and urges anyone who is worried about memory loss to seek a diagnosis. Sir Greg added: ‘three out of five people with dementia wish they had got a diagnosis earlier.’
The Alzheimer’s Society is Britain’s leading dementia charity and is a vital source of support and help for anyone affected by dementia. Sir Greg was one of a number of MP’s who supported their recent campaigning at Westminster.
