Memory Checks

Did you know we can help to provide aspects of a memory assessment here at the Surgery. Our memory is not always as sharp as it used to be as we age, sometimes a loved one notices before we do. Lets see what we can do to help!

This includes blood tests to check for anything that might be causing it, a CT scan of the head to check for reversible causes and then a chat with the memory team (usually in your own home) to see if there is anything that can be done to improve things.

There are a number of medications available now including those such as Memantine, designed to preserve and improve your memory which are accessible through this scheme. If you would like to benefit from one of these checks, please submit an online consult so we can action it for you. If you are unable to submit an online consult, please call us on 01886 880 207.
