One year on from its opening and Hornsby Hospital’s neurology Parkinson’s disease outpatient clinic is busy treating local residents with Parkinson’s disease or those suspected of having the illness.
The clinic has seen 50 patients with 68 neurologist follow ups, 89 nurse follow ups, and three patients commenced on advanced therapy.
The clinic was a first for Hornsby when it opened this time last year with neurologists and a dedicated Parkinson’s disease nurse seeing patients.
Parkinson’s Clinical Nurse Consultant Suliana Manuofetoa said the team has been receiving great feedback from patients and their carers about the service.
“The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai district has the highest number of people living with Parkinson’s in NSW,” Suliana said.
