To access our service we will need a referral form to be completed and sent to our team.
The form needs to be completed by a health or social professional such as a GP, social worker or nurse.
However, people with a confirmed diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease can self-refer to the Neurological Conditions Nursing Service.
All referrals will be screened and assessed on an individual basis to determine they are appropriate. If appropriate, a letter will be sent inviting the recipient to ‘opt in’ to our service.
The service is designed for adults aged 18 years onwards who live in Warrington or have a Warrington GP (clients between ages 16 – 18 will be assessed on an individual basis).
