Parkinson's nurses provide expert care because they only work with people with the condition.

 

They can support people coming to terms with their Parkinson's diagnosis.

  • A large part of the role is helping people to manage their medication, so they get the best results and fewer side effects.
  • They can make referrals to other professionals such as speech and language therapists and physiotherapists.
  • They train other health and social care professionals - for example on making sure people with Parkinson's get their medication on time in hospital.
