Set amidst the vast grounds of Edgware Community Hospital is a specialist cutting-edge Parkinson's service which is a safe haven for patients and carers alike. A spotlessly clean, brightly lit unit with wide corridors makes it easy for patients to navigate around.

"From the first time I came here, everyone had a very welcoming attitude. When you step in you are offered tea/coffee and so forth, you are taking to a lounge area where you can sit and wait, but also relax and chat to other people. The unit is very much unlike any other hospital I have been to," said Jane, who has been attending the service for a year.

"There is no other place that I have been that has the same dedication and knowledge base that I have found here. You can have so much advice for what other problems you may have. There are physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, among other members of the multidisciplinary team who are happy to talk through your concerns. Everyone is so helpful here," Jane moves on to say.


Recognising a gap in the service provision, Dr Sally Mathew set up the service in September 1997 making this its 20th year in operation.
