General Practitioners (GPs) play an important role in early detection and initiation of the diagnostic process of dementia. A consideration of barriers and enablers of this process can aid the diagnostic process. Early referral for Specialist evaluation is an important step. The GP can also provide additional advice and support to the patient and caregiver during diagnosis.
