Our brains are the key to who we are
The memory clinic package includes an interview and cognitive examination by a specialist doctor and a set of investigations designed to identify a wide range of possible causes of memory difficulties. The doctor will explain the findings of all tests with you once your assessment has been completed.
Who will I see?
You will see a medical consultant who is a recognised cognitive expert. All of our consultants hold or have previously held senior NHS consultant posts.
Is the the memory clinic package suitable for you ?
- The memory clinic assessment package is suitable for people in mid or later life who are experiencing significant memory difficulties and who wish to understand the reason for this
- It is also suitable for those in mid- and later life who are interested in the current health of their brain and what they can do to reduce the risk of memory loss and dementia in the future
- The memory clinic package may not be suitable for people with complex physical or mental health problems
- If you are not sure if the memory clinic package is right for you, speak to one of our staff who will be able to advise whether this, or a different service within Re:Cognition Health, would be the most suitable choice for you
What does the Memory Clinic Package include?
You will be given the option to complete a series of questionnaires before your first appointment. The questionnaires will take about 30 minutes and assist us in understanding more about your memory difficulties in order to tailor your assessment.
Initial assessment consultant appointment
Your assessment will start with a detailed interview with a consultant cognitive expert. You will also complete cognitive testing during this appointment.
Brain lifestyle assessment with tailored feedback
This will be based on your questionnaire responses and initial assessment interview.
MRI brain scan
Reported by a specialist neuroradiologist.
Re:Cognition health blood test panel
Blood tests include: full blood count, urea and electrolytes, liver function tests, thyroid function tests, calcium, glucose, vitamin B12, folate, cholesterol and tests for inflammation (CRP and ESR)
You will have a follow-up appointment with the same doctor as your initial assessment appointment, to discuss all findings and what they mean, and the different options moving forward.
