Today the Prime Minister is announcing a multi-million pound fund to tackle dementia – money we can only afford to spend because of careful management of the nation’s finances. Britain has led the global battle against dementia – a disease that steals lives and tears at the heart of families.
This week sees the next stage of that battle as today we announce new funding to help drive forward the search for drugs to beat dementia. The government will commit £15 million to help kick-start a fund and attract the private sector investment needed for this crucial work. You can only fund something as important as healthcare if you have a strong economy to underpin it.
