The Parkinson's Disease Nurse Specialists

Lisa Brown and Suzanne Filon are the Parkinson's Disease Nurse Specialist in Derby. Lisa is also a member of the National Parkinson's Audit Committee.

The Parkinson's nurses are available to give advice and support to people with Parkinson's and their families. The Parkinson's nurses can make referrals to other health care professionals who can help.

The Parkinson's nurse can provide information and education about Parkinson's medication. This will help you get the most out of your medication.

Parkinson's drug treatments may be different in different people. The treatment that your doctor advises may change with time. Treatment schedules may be complicated so don't be afraid to ask. Good clear information reduces anxiety.

Leaflets and fact-sheets on topics related to Parkinson's are available from the Parkinson's nurse and from Parkinson's UK.
