Local Parkinson's Excellence Network achievements

  • The introduction of an email alert system to alert the Parkinson's team when people with Parkinson’s have unplanned emergency department attendances. The system allows the specialist team to offer advice to the clinical team within 24 hours of admittance.

Coming up

  • Further evaluation of the email alert system to investigate its impact on delivery of timely interventions, patient outcomes, length of hospital stay and discharge planning.
  • An all Wales UK Parkinson's Excellence Network Meeting is taking place on 23rd January 2020: find out more and book a place.
