Key points

Memory clinics provide a valuable service for the assessment and management of people with memory difficulties.

They have also provided a focus for the initiation and monitoring of antidementia drug treatments.

They have grown in number and range of services they provide over the years.

A robust accreditation programme exists to assess the services and service standards.

As the number of people coming forward for investigation of memory problems increases, memory clinics may need realigning more to community and primary care settings.
