The Parkinson’s Disease Service provides medication reviews and monitoring of specialist drug therapy, screening, specialist telephone advice, specialist education and support for patients and carers.
Parkinson’s disease is a chronic, progressive neurological condition, affecting different aspects of life at different times of the disease process. This in turn determines the appropriate care required to improve patients’ and carers’ quality of life, while maximising clinical effectiveness and best practice.
