Hello. I am new here and my husbands memory has become much worse recently. He wouldn't acknowledge it initially but has done recently. I would like him to be assessed at a memory clinic but our GP surgery has become very reluctant to make referrals which will cost them money. If that is the case, can an assessment be done privately, as delays re other health issues have been very damaging. I am a huge supporter of the NHS, but know it is in real difficulty due to lack of funding.
