Parkinsons Consultant wanted


#1

My sister has been diagnosed for about seven years. She lives in St Austell and so has no access to anyone who specialises in Parkinsons. Her treatment has been lamentable throughout. She needs to see a Parkinsons consultant who will be able to advise and monitor her drug regime and above all who will care about her and oversee the progression of this disease with as much help as is available.


I live in Shoreham by Sea and so have easy access to hospitals in Brighton and Worthing and can get to London. If anyone out there has the name of a good consultant that we could see Susie will come to me and we will go together.

This really is a plea from the heart. I would be eternally grateful for any help you can give.

Thank you so much

Hi Wendy,

I'm really sorry to hear that your sister has not been able to see a specialist - this is really concerning to read. Does she have a Parkinson's local advisor who can help? Please do email adviser1.southwest@parkinsons.org.uk to get in touch with the adviser covering St Austell.

And our Helpline advisers will have more information about the referral process, to make sure she gets to see a specialist. Call on 0808 800 0303. 

Best wishes to you both,

Joanne - Digital team.
