Mental Health Hub

Jennifer Foley, Clinical Neuropsychologist with University College Hospitals London NHS Foundation Trust, leads the Excellence Network Mental Health Hub.

Our aim

To develop ways of improving mental health services for people affected by Parkinson's.

 

Activity

  • The second Mental Health Hub meeting took place virtually on 26 November 2020. Over 100 clinicians joined the event and heard a range of talks, including an interactive panel discussion on the impact of COVID-19 and new ways of working. Read a summary of the meeting (includes a link to watch a recording) to find out more.
  • A working group originating from the 2019 meeting has been looking at ways to improve service provision of clozapine for people with Parkinson’s. A survey by the group of Parkinson’s services revealed around 70% of Parkinson’s services have not prescribed clozapine, but when asked 'would you like your patients to have access to clozapine?’, over 90% said ‘yes’. Next steps following the survey will be worked on in 2021.

  • The inaugural meeting of the Mental Health Hub took place on 8 February 2019. Read the meeting report for a detailed update on the day.
