Our Community Mental Health Team (Older People) is an integrated mental health and social services team which provides psychiatric and social needs assessment, intervention and treatment. The CMHT operates as an outpatient service aims to provide a high quality service to older people with mental health problems by engaging and supporting service users, their carers and families. 

Our Diagnostic Memory Clinic is a multi-disciplinary team consisting of Psychiatry, Psychology and Dementia specialists The team can assess people with memory problems so that we can detect if they have the symptoms of dementia. Early diagnosis enables people to take advantage of new treatments to slow the onset of the condition, to plan their care and maintain a higher quality of life.

Referral is via your GP or other health professional.
Your GP or health professional can contact us to arrange an assessment.

We provide treatment and care for a range of mental health conditions either those that have been longstanding, or conditions that have developed more recently. 

We work closely with the Community Mental Health Team, GP’s,  Alzheimer’s Society and other agencies.

We can provide a full holistic assessment taking into account physical and psychological factors, plus any recent developments, changes or trauma.

With the individual and their carers, we can provide support and guidance, and involve other agencies to provide practical support now and going forward. One size does not fit all. 

We aim to give individuals and families the tools they need to live independently and safely, and to enjoy life.

The team is made up of medical staff, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists and art therapists who specialise in support for older people
