[Comment] Interpretation of dementia diagnosis and treatment trends in the UK over time

The study by Katherine Donegan and colleagues,1 published in The Lancet Public Health, provides a powerful analysis of routine data for dementia diagnosis rates and prescription practices over a period during which policies and practices have changed in the UK. The analysis presented in this Article uses the presence of codes in routine datasets indicating a dementia diagnosis during a 10 year period from 2005 to 2015. These data were extracted and examined in relation to prescribing practices and then linked to policy developments in the UK during this time.
