Aberdeen is preparing to launch Scotland’s first recognized brain healthcare centre that has been opened today by Maree Todd, the Minister for Social Care, Mental Wellbeing, and Sport.
The public health team at NHS Grampian has collaborated with Scotland’s government and Brain Health Scotland to establish the new brain healthcare clinic, featuring a unique walk-in service.
The clinic will provide guidance and a preliminary examination to anyone who is concerned about their neurological health. It will be housed within the Alzheimer’s Scotland Brain Health and Dementia Resource Centre.
The support staff can assist by creating individualized treatment plans to enhance neurological health, and access to the service will be facilitated through Grampian’s Healthpoint staff.
Alison Evison, member of NHS Grampian, commented, “NHS Grampian is thrilled to have worked alongside our partners to make this service a reality through shared experience and expertise.”
Evison went on to add, “The teams from all partners have worked extremely hard to turn this around very quickly, and I am certain the benefits to our local communities will be felt for years to come.”
Henry Simmons, the leading officer of Alzheimer Scotland, added, “This is one of the most positive developments Alzheimer Scotland has ever been a partner in and full aligns with the transitioning of our Centres across Scotland to become Brain Health and Dementia Resource Centres.”
