Parkinson's disease (PD) and movement disorders clinic

The clinic receives referral from primary and secondary care, predominantly from Lothian, but also further afield in Scotland.

Parkinsonism (mainly idiopathic Parkinson’s disease, PD) is the most common movement disorder, but other forms of movement disorder including ataxia, tremor, tics, dystonia, and functional movement disorders are also seen in this clinic.

Both new and review patients are seen, and the clinic occurs fortnightly, with regular meetings with the Lothian PD nurses. This clinic liaises closely with other PD clinics and PD experts in Lothian, including Dr C Maguire (Western General Hospital), Dr N Colledge (Liberton Hospital), and Dr M Corretge (St John’s Hospital, Livingston).
