New report on Memory Services from MSNAP 

The Royal College of Psychiatrists Memory Services National Accreditation Programme (MSNAP) have published their 2023 report which highlights data they’ve collected from memory clinics who are current members MSNAP. The report includes both quantitative and thematic analysis and provides some thought-provoking headlines, not least that the number of new admissions taken on by memory clinics per week has risen by 130% since 2009.  

Dr Sujoy Mukherjee, MSNAP Accreditation Committee Chair, said in foreword to the report: 
“Assessment and treatment of memory disorders are currently in a crossroad with new developments in treatment and assessment process. This will have major implications on how memory services are delivered in the UK over coming years. MSNAP is fully committed to remain and evolve at the cutting edge of assessing and improving quality in the future.”
