Redbridge memory service
The Memory Service offers assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and therapeutic interventions to people aged 18 years and over, who have a memory problem in which there is a suspected dementia.
The service screens for conditions such as Dementia, which is an umbrella term for progressive brain changes such as Alzheimer's Disease, Vascular Dementia, and others.
Who are we?
We are a team of doctors, nurses, psychologists, occupational therapists, and other healthcare practitioners. All our team have training and experience in working with people with memory difficulties.
What do we do?
We are dedicated to providing high quality assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for people in Redbridge who have memory difficulties. We also provide support for people with memory problems and their families and have links with many other services working within the local community.
Who do we see?
We see adults of any age with memory difficulties. People are usually referred to us by their GP, but we also receive referrals from other doctors and healthcare professionals. If you would like to talk to someone about any concerns that you have about your memory, we would advise that you to talk to your GP in the first instance.
How can I access the service?
Ideally your GP is the first point of call if you begin to experience memory problems, confusion, or disorientation. They can rule out any physical cause of the symptoms and may then make a referral to the memory clinic. For mental health emergencies outside usual working hours call Mental Health Direct on 0800 995 1000.
