What is The Memory Assessment Service?
The Memory Service is a specialist assessment service within the NHS that aims to meet the needs of people who are concerned that they may have a memory problem. The team is made up of specialist doctors, nurses, occupational therapists and psychologists. They assess and diagnose the nature of the person’s memory difficulties, report this to the family doctor and advise on further treatment or intervention.
