Our memory services aim to help people who are worried that their poor memory may be a sign of dementia. These services provide a full assessment of the problem, start treatment if that is needed and offer advice about available support for the person and their care-giver.
A referral to our service may be advisable if you are having increased difficulty:
For further information about dementia, visit our list of resources to different organisations that can provide you with support and advice.
If you are worried about your memory and would like to be seen by a memory clinic, the first step is discussing your concerns with your GP.
If you already have an appointment at one of our memory clinics and have questions about this, contact your memory clinic directly.
When we get a referral letter from your GP, we will contact you to arrange an appointment.
We often also arrange for patients to have a brain scan before seeing them in clinic.

Our memory clinic teams consist of consultant psychiatrists, specialist dementia nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists and dementia advisers.
The appointment will include answering general questions about your memory, day-to-day activities, driving, and family life and also carrying out some memory tests. This is described more fully in this leaflet which will be sent with your appointment letter.
The aim of the clinic appointment is to provide a treatment plan to support your medical, social and care needs. This will be based on a diagnosis, which we can share with you and your family if wanted.
We are actively engaged in research, and you will be offered the opportunity to be contacted about suitable studies, for example assessing or treating memory problems. This is entirely optional. Many patients and their families find this a very rewarding experience.
