Referrals can be made via the “Single Point of Access” – Call the service on 01902 826 655 and the individual can ask to speak to one of the Dementia Navigators. This can be done as a self-referral, by an individual’s family member/ carer or by their GP. You can also make contact by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
