We have a Dementia Adviser, Pat Strachan who runs clinics in our surgeries on a monthly basis (third Thursday of the month).
Pat can offer help and support to both dementia sufferers and their carers. She has a wealth of experience and access to lots of information networks that can offer advice and help.
If you would like an appointment with Pat please contact the surgery who will book you into her clinic. She is happy to meet you in person or speak over the telephone if you would prefer.
