The staff at the Memory Clinic were very good. It just took a few months from first appointment to get diagnosis for my Mum's Alzheimer's and they did seem very thorough.
Only problem I had was getting her doctor to refer her to a specialist. I started taking Mum to her GP in early 2013 and I had to persist for about 16 months! Luckily we saw a GP who was a locum working on relief or it would have been too late!
I thought GP's were aware of how important it is to diagnose Alzheimer's. It wasn't in our case.
