- We can advise about accessing services from different organisations such as the NHS, local Council and the voluntary sector;
- We provide a follow-up service to offer you further help if your needs change;
- Any results, advice or treatment given to you will be followed up by a letter to your GP to inform them about thecare that you have received from the Memory Service
How can I be referred?
We accept referrals directly from GPs or via other C&I services. Referrals can be faxed or sent to us using our contact details found at the back of this leaflet. Before proceeding, we will need blood test results, which your GP will be able to arrange, in order to identify any physical conditions that might be causing your memory difficulties.
