What do we do?
If you have concerns about memory problems or dementia regarding yourself or a family member, or are a carer for someone who is experiencing memory loss, our GPs will be able to offer a memory screening test before referring you to a memory service for further assessment by the specialist Memory Service team. Patients with dementia have a minimum of twice yearly dementia/general health checks. The surgery has copies of the Devon Carers’ Pathway Booklet, which we can supply to interested patients and their carers. The surgery can also provide a carer’s pack, including advice on benefits and other sources of support
How to access this service:
Patients registered at North Road West Medical Centre should book an appointment to see their GP at the surgery, if they are able to attend a surgery appointment. If not, they or their relatives or carer can request a home visit for assessment.
