 About this document
Surrey County Council and NHS Surrey have worked jointly with stakeholders todevelop a five year Dementia and Older People’s Mental Health Joint CommissioningStrategy. The thrust of the strategy is to modernise dementia and older peoplesmental health services in line with national strategies. These strategies driveintegration of health and social care services to develop into modern comprehensiveservices that support independence and promote personalisation. A draft strategy wasissued for a twelve week public consultation exercise, coordinated by an independentcommunications firm, in 2010. Analysis of the consultation outcomes demonstratedboth broad agreement to the draft proposals and identified additions that have beenincorporated into this final version. No controversial findings were reported. Thestrategy is also supported by a number of local reference documents; these are listedon page 42.

The strategy: the main things we want to happen over the next five years and whatthat means for those with dementia, older people with mental health conditions andtheir carers
While dementia is a key feature of mental health services for older people (thoseover 65 years of age), this joint commissioning strategy also caters for the fullrange of mental health needs, including depression and severe mental illness.This strategy includes:
Mental health services for older people aged 65 and over 
Services that provide treatment, care and support for mental illnesses sometimesknown as ‘functional’, such as depression and anxiety
Services that provide treatment, care and support for mental illnesses sometimesknown as ‘organic’, such as dementia – including Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia,fronto-temporal dementia, Parkinson’s disease dementia and Korsakoff's dementia
Services for the small number of people who experience early onset dementia,meaning those who develop dementia before the age of 65
Services for people with learning disabilities who are often under the age of 65when they develop dementia
This strategy excludes:
Mental health services for people younger than 65 (except people with dementia)If you need this document in another format please contactSurrey County Council Contact Centre byTelephone on 08456 009 009 or by email Hcontact.centre@surreycc.gov.ukH
