Re:Cognition Health: The Brain & Mind Experts
Re:Cognition Health was established in 2011 to provide a comprehensive pathway to individuals experiencing issues with their cognition. The company’s vision is to become the recognised leader in the diagnosis, treatment and care management of individuals experiencing cognitive impairment.
Under the leadership of Dr MacSweeney, dedicated clinics across the UK work hard to realise Re:Cognition Health’s mission to provide the best clinical quality and customer experience in mental health diagnostic and treatment services for the benefit of patients, referring clinicians, employers and investors.
Diagnosing Cognitive Impairment
In the interview, the Consultant Neuroradiologist explains that it takes a full team of cognitive experts to diagnose a neurological condition. This is because of the different types of neurological expertise that’s required to address the complexities in the diagnostic process. Each specialist plays a unique, yet pivotal part in the diagnostic process.

New Treatments For Memory Loss
The innovative treatments available at Re:Cognition Health’s clinics in London, Guildford, Plymouth & Birmingham are also covered in the interview.
These disease-modifying treatments are designed to treat conditions such as Lewy Body dementia, fronto-temporal dementia, vascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease as well as Parkinson’s disease.
Clinical Trials For Alzheimer’s disease
Acknowledging that it’s been 15 years since a new medication for Alzheimer’s disease was licensed for global use, Dr MacSweeney highlights that only through research and education will we be able to find new treatments to stop the symptoms of memory problems from progressing.
Ultimately, it’s hoped that clinical trials will help find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
