XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

The current situation now is that we are continuing with telephone consultations in place of face to face, home visits which have been suspended until further notice.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

During the last few months, the service has been overwhelmed with telephone queries, resulting in fewer telephone consultations taking place.

Patients who were due to be seen in April are still waiting for a telephone call. Following discussions with our manager, the priority has been to reduce these waiting lists for telephone consultations for new patients and reviews

There are approximately 100 new patients waiting for a first contact with us plus 600 reviews which are overdue.

When reviewing the telephone calls received, we found that the majority of them could have been dealt with by the GP or were not Parkinson’s related.

We understand that it is sometimes difficult to get through to your GP’s however they are responsible for all of your health needs and if after discussion with your GP they feel our input is required then they can contact us directly themselves .

Therefore, if any of you have any concerns regarding health issues, your first port of call should be your GP for an assessment of your needs.

Since the beginning of the lockdown, Debby and Rose were redeployed to district nursing leaving myself the only member of the team available to take calls on two days a week and then our dear colleague Sarah Coyle has retired fully, so the team is now 2.2 whole time equivalents, with no reduction in caseload numbers practices taking into account we are still not out of the woods yet.

This has been a very difficult decision for us to have made as a team, but we feel that this is the only way to move forward in the current climate and it has been exactly the same for other services in our trust.

We all look forward to meeting up again face to face. This has got to be an excuse for a party eventually!

With warmest wishes to all of you
