The Coffs Clinical Network provides person centred care for people living with Parkinson’s disease. The Parkinson’s Nurse Consultant works 7 days a fortnight supporting and consulting with people with Parkinson’s disease and their carers living in the Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca local government areas. The initiative is funded by Parkinson’s NSW and the Mid North Coast Local Health District, and also works in partnership with the North Coast Primary Health Network.
The goal of the service is to optimise and co-ordinate the treatment of people with Parkinson’s disease, work closely with the patient’s General Practitioner and Neurologist, provide advanced therapy options, support and referrals to appropriate Allied Health and Community Services. The patients’ seen have Parkinson’s Disease, Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s Plus syndromes.
- Referrals can be made through a GP or Specialist, self-referrals, and from the staff working in the Aged Care Facility, Public and Private hospital.
- Person being referred is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
