The Neuropsychology Service is a countywide community service providing neuropsychological assessment, support and advice to people with acquired brain injuries and neurological conditions. The service is also contracted to provide inpatient neuropsychological input to Ashby Ward, Lincoln County Hospital, and to support a Clinical Psychologist embedded within the Community Stroke Service.
Common reasons for referral to our community service include difficulties with thinking, memory, concentration and emotional and behavioural changes.
At your first appointment, we usually ask about the kind of problems you are having and how you are feeling and coping. If appropriate and with your agreement, you will then usually be asked to complete a series of cognitive tasks and questionnaires during further appointments. This type of assessment aims to identify the specific problems you are experiencing as well as your personal strengths to help you overcome and manage weaknesses. On completion of your assessment, the results will be discussed with you alongside any possible recommendations for your future care and day to day coping.
Referral to the neuropsychology service is usually made via GPs and other health professionals.
