Parkinson's and Other Movement Disorders

The Movement Disorders Health Integration Team (HIT) is a team of clinical staff, scientists, charity and industry representatives, and patients. They are working together to improve treatment and support for people with Parkinson's and other movement disorders in the Bristol area and further afield, as their work aims to have international impact.

Their main objective is to evolve, over the next 10 years, a high quality, high impact, internationally-recognised system for Parkinson's and other movement disorders. This will incorporate and integrate all aspects of clinical and social care, translational research and competency based education, supported by first class management and commissioning.
