Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that investing in dementia care will save the NHS money in the long term, and that today's new funding was "just the start." He said:
"We are now in a position were we have more pensioners than children. By 2012 we will have a million people who have dementia, and we need a very big change to help them and their families. And this money is just the start."
"A quarter of people in hospital now have dementia. There are a number of ways we can improve their care in hospital"
