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.
