In October 2012 the National Dementia Action Alliance launched the Right Care: a call to action to create dementia-friendly hospitals. All acute trusts in England were asked to make a public commitment to becoming dementia-friendly.

The Charter is the second phase of the Right Care initiative. This has been renamed Dementia-Friendly Hospitals and it focuses on our Dementia-Friendly Hospital Charter. It provides high-level principles of what a dementia-friendly hospital should look like and recommended actions that hospitals can take to fulfil them. In the Dementia 2020 Challenge, one of the key aspirations is to create dementia-friendly hospitals.
