Memory Clinic Service
The Memory Clinic Service at SPMHS is a specialist in-patient service designed to provide assessment, diagnosis, follow-up treatment and support for persons experiencing memory difficulties. Each assessment is conducted in a multidisciplinary team approach lead by a consultant psychiatrist. Additional members of the team include a neuropsychologist, clinical nurse specialist, occupational therapist and social worker.
Information and support is also available for the person’s family/caregiver.
A comprehensive multidisciplinary assessment will take place over a three-day period and will be followed by an outpatient formal feedback meeting which will discuss both a diagnosis and options for treatment, ongoing information, education, support and advice about local support and care services.
Prior to the specialist inpatient service, an initial Memory Clinic assessment at the Dean Clinic may be recommended.
