Halcyon Doctors are exemplary private consultants specialised in cognitive impairment and mental capacity, offering bespoke assessment, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.
We take pride in being approachable, thorough and solution-oriented.
Common symptoms to look out for are changes of thinking speed, mental agility, language use, understanding, judgement, as well as memory loss. There are a broad range of physical and psychological conditions, including more than 100 different types of dementia, that could cause these cognitive symptoms. For any treatment to be effective, timely and accurate diagnosis is imperative.
The first step, if you or someone close to you is experiencing or suspecting some form of cognitive impairment, is to get in touch with us to discuss the issues you are facing and to decide the best way forward.
If you choose to see a Halcyon Doctor, we’ll endeavour to schedule the appointment within a matter of days. We also recognise the value in meeting you at a place where you feel most comfortable, typically in your own home, and at a time that suits you.
We accept self-referrals from both patients and close relatives. Halcyon Doctors also welcome referrals from General Practitioners (GPs) and instructions from Solicitors (for capacity assessments).
