Movement disorders

What we do

We are one of 11 National Parkinson Foundation-accredited International Centres of Excellence and one of the few centres in the UK able to provide invasive therapies for advanced Parkinson’s Disease such as Duodopa, apomorphine and deep brain stimulation (DBS).

We offer full specialist care for Parkinson’s disease, including access to state-of-the-art clinical trials. We run a quarterly Parkinson’s expert patient group and hold a NICE-approved patient empowerment clinic every three months.

We also provide a regional service for patients with dystonia, restless leg syndrome (RLS) and Huntington’s disease.

Our team works closely with King’s paediatrics (children’s) service and runs a transitional clinic for young adults with DBS entering adulthood. They also work closely with neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology.

King’s is the hub of the European Network for Parkinson’s disease (euroPA) research organisation, and is also an accredited European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS) and Parkinson’s Disease Non-Motor group (PDNMG) centre for teaching and research.
