Parkinson’s Nurse Specialists Service During Covid-19

The Parkinson’s Nurses say hello and we trust you are all coping during this period of time in our lives.

Clinic Appointments

APART FROM  VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF CASES YOUR APPOINTMENTS WITH YOUR PARKINSON’S NURSE WILL NOT BE FACE TO FACE IN CLINIC FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

HOWEVER WE WILL BE PHONING YOU ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT.

You will receive a letter about this before your next clinic appointment. If you are unsure please phone our helpline and not the hospital records team.

Telephone Helpline:

We continue to take calls on our telephone helpline: 0131 465 9156

We check messages from Monday – Friday from 08.00 to 16.00 and we aim to return calls within 2 working days. Please leave your name, telephone number and date of birth and we will do our best to help you.

Remember you do not become suddenly unwell with Parkinson’s so PLEASE contact your GP for advice or dial 999 if you are acutely unwell. If you have general medical concerns please call your GP, do not ignore any health concerns.

When attending any NHS appointment please follow the guidelines set out in the pdf Generic Physical Distancing Arrangements in Outpatients.

Take care and we look forward to seeing you again at some point in the future. We will keep you informed of any developments via the Branch website.

Yours sincerely

Alison Stewart, Tina Daniels and Allison Darbyshire
