A Parkinson's disease Nurse Specialist cares for patients and their carers who are affected by the condition. They can assist people with Parkinson's disease and their carers, to improve the quality of life by linking them to the appropriate care services and therapies. Parkinson's disease Nurse Specialists can liaise with GPs, consultants and any other health care professional regarding a patient's individual needs.

A Parkinson's disease Nurse Specialist may advise patients on adjustment of medication following discussion with medical colleagues.
