Where is Carnforth ICC?

Carnforth ICC 1

Memory Assessment Service

The Memory Assesment Service (MAS) is a new service that is currently being trialled at Carnforth Clinic.

It involves a Care Coordinator working closely with a GP. If they note a concern regarding memory, the Care Coordinator will take memory assessment bloods (for those who are unable to come to the surgery for their blood tests), and a referral is made to the memory assessment clinic.

Lancashire and South Cumbria Foundation Trust are running a Memory Assessment Clinic (fortnightly) at Carnforth Clinic; which is close to home and a familiar environment for patients. An assessment is carried out and a diagnosis is made if appropriate.

Feedback is being collected and there is a study of 10 patients who went through diagnosis pre MAS and 10 patients post set up of MAS will be done by the team.
