'Proper dementia diagnosis crucial' - Jeremy Hunt
Getting a proper diagnosis for more people is one of the key targets for the government in its efforts to tackle dementia, the health secretary has said.
Speaking ahead of a G8 summit on dementia, Jeremy Hunt told the BBC fewer than half of those with dementia are given a proper diagnosis.
He said giving someone a proper diagnosis meant "support for their family... you can help them change their lifestyle... you can live healthily and happily at home for much longer."
