The One Stop Memory Clinic
As well as his practice at the Nuffield Hospital, Dr Ansell has partnered with the Cobalt Imaging Centre, in Cheltenham, where it is possible to have a clinical assessment and the specialist neuroimaging required to make a diagnosis at the same appointment, usually leading to a diagnosis and treatment recommendations on the same day
While this is convenient for many people, it does require about 3 hours so is not for everybody.
Information about this clinic is available on request.
