We have a diverse team of clinicians who will use their specialist skills and knowledge to assess whether it is dementia or a mild cognitive impairment that is causing your memory problems, and to ensure that you get the appropriate treatment.
We have a specialist team of nurses who have considerable experience and knowledge about dementia and mild cognitive impairment.
Our service has five specialist nurses (Julie, Michaela, Claire, Allie and Karen), and a nurse prescriber (Garry). This group is led by our lead specialist nurse, Alison Melling.
We have four doctors (Rachel, Esme, Lucy and Rupert), two consultant psychiatrists (Kristina and Victoria) and a pharmacist prescriber (Gill). The clinical leadership is shared by our GP Clinical Lead, Dr Rachel Duncan and our two consultant psychiatrists, Dr Kristina Antonova and Dr Victoria Lukats.
The specialist nurses take the lead with the assessment process within our service.
Our nursing team are supported by experienced doctors and consultants who are part of the multidisciplinary team. This approach brings together our collective skills and knowledge when considering each person’s assessment, diagnosis and treatment options. This helps to make sure that everyone gets the help that is right for them.
