Dementia Screening

As a Practice, we would encourage any patient who is concerned about their memory to consult their Doctor in the usual way for assessment.

The Doctors will automatically test patients who are at risk of memory decline as part of good medical care.  As a Practice, we do not intend to call patients in specifically for a memory assessment alone.

If you have concerns about your (or a relative's) memory, please do not hesitate to discuss it with your Doctor at a routine appointment.

Transport to the Surgery - please remember we utilise the Ramsbury Community Bus (suspended currently through Covid) on a Tuesday and Thursday morning for transporting our patients to and from the Surgery (from designated pickup points).  This new minibus has a disabled access ramp and provides a service for any patient without transport.  Please ask our Receptionists for further information if you feel this service would be beneficial to your or your family.
