In this blog, Consultant Neurologist Jane Alty, talks about a patient with Parkinson's who was cared for in their trust for a period of time, during which there were frequent occasions on which his Parkinson's medications were delayed or not given. This sadly contributed to a deterioration in his swallowing and overall condition, and lengthened his time in hospital.
Inspired by a letter from his wife, Jane and colleagues started the 'Improving care of patients with Parkinson’s quality improvement project' at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Here she talks about the journey, the successes and challenges, and the value of involving staff from across the organisation and carers to make services better.
