Are you worried about your memory?
There are many reasons why our memory can be affected. Please come and talk to one of our GPs or Nurses if you are worried about your memory. We can arrange for you to have a memory test and look at why you might be forgetful. This usually involves a blood test and you may need a brain scan.
We can offer support within the practice and also refer you to a Memory specialist Nurse or Doctor.
Dr Colthurst & Lynne Gribble (Nurse) are our practice leads for those with memory problems.
One of the basic memory tests we use is the minicog.pdf
