The team helps to improve the management of long-term conditions, such as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis or motor neurone disease. They help patients achieve or maintain their desired potential and enable them to live independently for as long as possible.

The service is provided in community settings and in patients' homes where necessary.

The team offers the following services:

Dietician

The dietician provides malnutrition assessment, advice and support to patients, including those on home enteral feeding, and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) feeding. The service is provided in patients' own homes, residential and nursing homes.

Falls clinic

The falls service offers a multidisciplinary, consultant-led clinic that provides comprehensive assessment and specialist diagnostics to patients who have had a fall or are at risk of falling. The clinic can refer patients to specialities and signpost them to relevant agencies. The service also provides a 8-week, evidence-based falls prevention exercise programme either at patients' homes or in group settings at Northwood Health Centre and Riverside Unit.

Physiotherapy

The physiotherapy service includes general rehabilitation for patients with orthopaedic, respiratory and geriatric conditions and specialist neuro-physiotherapy for patients with conditions such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), motor neurone disease (MND), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis (MS). The service also supplies mobility aids, following assessment. The service has an outpatient facility at Eastcote Health Centre for patients with neurological impairment.
