What We Do
The Memory Assessment Service (MAS) provided by Cwm Taf Morgannwg Local Health Board will deliver a comprehensive and holistic service to those referred because of concern that they may have memory difficulties, including timely assessment, diagnosis followed by appropriate post-diagnostic care and treatment. The service will be provided to those suspected of having cognitive difficulties due to a progressive condition and will not be appropriate for those with static cognitive impairment due to, for example, brain injury. We are a multi-disciplinary team.
Can anyone use this service?
All adults over the age of 18.
We accept referrals from GPs and hospitals.
