Parkinson’s Nurse

Parkinsons nurses near you

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.

Our Nurses come from Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust
