Resetting with the UK Parkinson's Excellence Network
As we adapt to a rapidly changing healthcare landscape in the wake of Covid-19, shared professional knowledge and patient insight are essential to resetting our Parkinson’s services.
Since 2015, the UK Parkinson’s Excellence Network has been the driving force for improving Parkinson’s care: connecting and equipping professionals to provide the services people affected by the condition want to see.
The Excellence Network clinical leadership team invite you to join them to:
- Learn what the Excellence Network can offer your service and professional development
- Hear about the Excellence Network’s resources and support around Covid-19
- Discuss how we can grow patient involvement
- Have your say – tell us how the Excellence Network can best support you to reset and rebuild.
