Dr Donald Grosset to step down as Clinical Director for the UK Parkinson's Excellence Network

Dr Donald Grosset will be stepping down from his role as Clinical Director of the Excellence Network at the end of May.

Over the last 4 and a half years in the role, Donald has achieved a lot as clinical director, including calmly leading the Excellence Network through the coronavirus pandemic and transforming the way we drive service improvement. Our Bone Health programme is a fantastic example of this. Donald will continue to play an active role in the Network and from June he will become Clinical Lead for Service Improvement. 

Commenting on this news, Rowan Wathes, Associate Director of the UK Parkinson's Excellence Network, said:

"Donald has been an absolutely fantastic clinical director. It has been an enormous pleasure working with him over the past year. I have valued his supreme wisdom, clarity of thought, and relentless drive to improve services for people with Parkinson's. I look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role."
