Patient feedback

“Parkinson’s is an extremely distressing condition making it difficult for patients to remain positive but having the specialist clinic in our backyard makes things so much better.”

“It allows staff to work as a team and if any member of the team needs anything they are all together in the same building!”

“This has given us hope that things can be better.”

“This  has given me my granddad back!”
