Geriatric Medicine and Elderly Care

Geriatric Medicine and Elderly Care service aimed at the needs of older people, providing specialist services for conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease and more general conditions such as unexplained falls and undefined health deterioration.

We work in partnership with several other departments to provide a multidisciplinary approach across many of our services, with a dedicated Day Rehabilitation Unit on the NGH site and outreach into the Community.

We see and care for patients with:

  • Undifferentiated Illness and General Frailty
  • Parkinson’s Disease (and Parkinsonian symptoms)
  • General Movement Disorders
  • Acute Confusion
  • Complex Medicines Management
  • Stroke and the after-effects
  • Falls assessments and investigation
