Reduced services due to Covid-19
Together with the rest of the NHS, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust is preparing for the unprecedented demands of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. During this time, your care may change a little, for example it may be delivered in a different way, or may have to be postponed for a while. We will try to explain why we have to take these steps below.
As a result of the outbreak, we are prioritising the care we normally provide, and some services will be restricted or closed. We will be writing to patients who are affected. If you were expecting to attend one of our clinics in the next few days and have not received a letter, please phone the number provided on your original appointment letter to confirm whether you should still attend.

If you have been experiencing some difficulties with your memory, your GP may have suggested that you attend the memory clinic for assessment. Memory problems can have many causes and are not always the result of dementia. Your GP will usually try to rule out any physical causes before referral. The memory service provides assessment, diagnosis and treatment for people who are experiencing memory difficulties. You may be offered an appointment with a psychiatrist or a specialist memory service nurse.
People of all ages with probable dementia.
Who to contact if you need an interpreter or information about disabled access
