Coventry & Warwickshire Regional Parkinson's Disease Service

Welcome to the Coventry & Warwickshire Regional Parkinson's Service. This website provides information for people with Parkinson's, their carers and their health professionals. We hope that you find it useful but please do let us know if there is anything else you would like information about.

Who are we and where can we be found?

The regional Parkinson’s team comprises of doctors, nurses and therapists with specialist training in Parkinson’s who work closely together. We also have very close links with the Parkinson’s UK Local Advisers as well as the specialist nurses for other Parkinsonian conditions and non-oral therapies.
