I attended Tolworth Hospital Dementia Dept with my mother who was going in for an assessment. She was meeting with a new consultant and was quite apprehensive (as with a lot of older people, she was nervous about change! ).
We met with Neil Clemenson and he was a very positive, friendly and chatty person who (I observed) soon put mum at ease and I could see she felt quite relaxed talking to him. He performed a dementia test and mum did quite well as she felt more at ease.
I came away thinking what a credit Neil was in the whole care system and if only we had more people in the caring professions of his character! !
