There is significant investment into these services to support the implementation of the new model. We are looking for an experienced and motivated Parkinson's Specialist Nurse with the vision to develop the PD role in the integrated pathways and deliver high quality assessment and intervention.

This new model focuses on a co-ordinated approach to working with people and supporting them to optimally manage their condition. It will involve bringing Consultant Neurologists, specialist nurses, AHPs and psychologists working across several organisations together to work as an integrated team to optimise clinical care.

You need to be driven and prepared to ensure the delivery of high quality care at all times. Experience of working jointly with neuropsychology to support people to manage cognitive impairment associated with their neurological disorder would be desirable.
