You can self-refer. Referrals are also accepted from other doctors or mental health professionals.
The first consultation takes 90 min and you can expect a discussion about your previous history, assessment of your presenting problems and you as a person.
It is important to have the information about your overall health, previous treatments, existing conditions, allergic reactions, investigations and tests etc. For this reason, it is always a good idea to have a summary from your GP. With your consent, this summary will be requested from your GP prior to the appointment.
If you require medication, you will be issued with a private prescription. If you have provided consent, then your GP will be informed about your new medication.
Follow up appointment
This appointment is to review your progress and treatment plan, to discuss any additional issues, and provide feedback about any tests that you might have undertaken since the initial assessment.
Initial appointment with a cognitive test
This appointment is for patients who have concerns about their memory. During this appointment, you will have a detailed assessment of your mental health and memory issues.
To make sure that nothing is missed, it is essential to have relevant history especially medical summary from your GP. Due to the complexity of potential memory problems, all bookings will require GP summary prior to the appointment.
Please bring your reading glasses if you need them because you will need to read and write during the test.
