We offer assessment, diagnosis and treatment if you have cognitive impairment, dementia and other mental health issues associated with later life. We provide services through the Dementia Intensive Support Team (DIST), community mental health team or inpatient wards as appropriate.
Your GP should refer you to the Access and Assessment team initially.
If this is your first referral we normally assess you in your own home environment and involve your family or carers if you are happy for us to do so.
Following your assessment, if you would benefit from our services we work with you to develop a care plan. The community team normally visits you at home or you could be offered a clinic appointment. If you need to be admitted to hospital then the DIST arranges this with you.
