Mental Health Services for Older People (MHSOP) Memory Service

Our MHSOP Memory Service provides diagnostic assessment and treatment for people with dementia within a clinic setting, care home or their own home.

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.
