Neuropsychology

Neuropsychology patient consultation

Patients are often referred because they are experiencing cognitive (memory, language or concentration) difficulties and have a neurological condition. In addition we also see a number of patients with cognitive difficulties that do not have a diagnosis.

Some patients are referred with medical unexplained symptoms and present with motor and sensory symptoms or ‘funny turns’ that cannot be explained medically.

Our role is to conduct a thorough assessment with the patient. We will initially invite patients for a consultation to gain more information about their difficulties and, if appropriate, ask them to attend further appointments to complete a Neuropsychological assessment and tests. This information is used to inform diagnosis and helps us have a better understanding of your condition for future care.
