I went to ward 52 of Coventry University hospital, in Coventry.
Though I was not being treated for my Parkinson’s, it was clear that most staff were not fully aware of how to help care for a patient with Parkinson’s – only senior staff seemed to have any idea. I got my medication on time when possible, but staff had to be made aware of the difficulties of swallowing tablets with my Parkinson’s.
I did not manage my medication myself, which might have been a problem, but after guidance from my husband there were no problems.
