  1. Kirklees Memory Service provides assessment, diagnosis and consideration of possible treatment options, for those people diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Referrals to the service usually come from GPs or other professionals who can liaise with a person's GP. This is to ensure that the referral is appropriate, that other illnesses have been ruled out prior to referral, and to commence appropriate investigations such as blood tests prior to referral. If a treatment is prescribed by the Consultant psychiatrists, they will monitor progress 6 monthly once the person is stable on the medication. Medication will be one of the anti dementia drugs.

    The team includes Nurses, Occupational Therapists and Doctors. The Memory Service operates clinics in the Huddersfield and Dewsbury area. It also includes Admiral Nurses and a team specialising in younger people diagnosed with dementia, the Crowlees team.

    Appointments can be arranged in Huddersfield and Dewsbury.
