Important News Covid-19 Virus

Derby Road site will be operating as an isolation site  from Monday 23rd March. The site will be manned by a full team of staff working via telephone and  e mail. We are also hoping to start using video consultations as well. All patients who need to be seen will be seen at  the Pinewood site where infection control protocols will be followed to prevent the spread of infection including the use of personal protective equipment such as masks, aprons, gloves and goggles. In the possible event that staff are forced to self isolate and / or become unwell , we will re -deploy staff from the Derby Road site as and when required. We hope in this way to preserve a resilient workforce for as long as possible. Any patient attending the Pinewood site will be given instructions to wait in the car park until asked to come into the surgery. ALL patient requests for appointments will continue to be assessed and prioritized by telephone and by e mail.  It is clear to us that many routine procedures and treatments will be delayed as we attempt to meet the needs of our most vulnerable and ill patients. We apologize sincerely for this and ask for the understanding of our patients.

For more details on specifics, please see the newsletter below.

Community Memory Assessment

Error: Embedded data could not be displayed.  

At the Community Memory Assessment Service (CMAS) East Suffolk we provide assessment and diagnosis of memory problems, including dementia. Our service is provided locally and conveniently for you as a patient. Our team see you in a community based setting.

When you are referred to us, you are assessed and, if appropriate, sent for a head scan, usually at Nuffield Hospital. After this, you see one of our CMAS doctors to discuss your diagnosis and receive the appropriate advice, support and treatment, such as medication, if appropriate.

Early diagnosis of dementia can enable planning for the future, access to support, better mental wellbeing for you and your family, and gives everyone involved a better understanding of the condition.

Following a diagnosis, our nurse practitioners provide a followup appointment to see how you are getting on with any medication that has been prescribed, and to provide further information and advice. ​

If you or your family have been worrying about your memory for some time, please speak to your GP. They can refer you to us here at CMAS.​
