Memory assessment service

The memory assessment service is a primary care diagnostic pathway hosted by the older adult mental health service (opens in new tab) for people of any age with a suspected dementia. The service offers:

  • timely and sensitive diagnosis for people with dementia
  • tailored information and education
  • psychological and medical treatment dependant on need
  • a plan of care and post diagnostic support before return to the care of a GP

The teams are led by advance nurse practitioners, one in each county, with a dedicated medical lead consultant psychiatrist, consultant neuropsychologist and includes specialist memory assessment nurses and occupational therapists.


To rule out common reversible causes of memory impairment, we ask that a GP complete a physical health screen. This is to rule out any other possible causes for changes in your memory prior to you being referred to the service.


Assessments are usually undertaken with a clinic environment and take approximately two hours and diagnosis is mostly complete with 12 weeks from referral.
