"Kind and helpful staff at the memory clinic"

About: Tolworth Hospital / Memory clinic

(as a carer),

Just to say I have been attending this clinic for approx 3 yrs now with my mother who has dementia. The staff have always been very kind and helpful.

Recently we have been seeing Neil Clemenson a clinic nurse. He always treats my mother with the greatest respect and encourages her to talk and interact although sometimes her mind wanders due to her dementia.

Also the current clinic environment is much pleasanter than the previous location.

We have received consistent postive feedback about the clinic and this was the basis of a Patient Story to the Board at the beginning of May. You can access it on our website.
