Hi thanks for all the replies... Yeah SA that sounds interesting I'll look into it.
My letter from my Neuro came this morning and it says "I think his on going follow up would be better within the movement disorder clinic given his age" and "he was happy for routine review across in the Cresta specialist clinic but i think we would find it easier to have the PD nurse locally within Chester-le-Street in the interim."
So from what I've read it seems to be basically the same treatment normal review or will they do movement tests on me again?
After doing some research on the clinic I found this http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/about-us/research-and-newcastle-hospitals_research-facilities.aspx and https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/downloads/Neurology/Parkinson_Clinic_Overview_v4.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwiavffMvprVAhURmrQKHUyHCj0QFgggMAE&usg=AFQjCNFYwHyMXYKV7lLzX-m3JOaUJYIlww
Seems to be a research clinic led by Professor Burns it says this in the pdf that I linked... New Diagnosis Patients
This Service is to provide a rapid
access clinic to all new patients
who are thought to have
Parkinson’s disease. They should
be referred untreated and we
will triage to the most
appropriate clinic. We will aim to
see these patients within 6
Already Diagnosed Patients
The Service will see patients
referred with an existing
diagnosis of Parkinson’s
Disease. These patients will be
given an appointment based on
So as I am already diagnosed maybe I won't have to go through all the through all the newbie rigmoral and maybe I'll have access to new drugs... Do you guys think I'd be better off there or in care of the Neuro I have been seeing for almost a 2 year? As I am tempted to switch back.
