Atypical Parkinsonian syndrome service

We can give you a specialist opinion and support if you've been diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), multiple system atrophy (MSA), corticobasal syndrome (CBS) and other similar conditions.

Our clinic team includes two consultant neurologists, Dr Ghosh and Dr Massey, who have both carried out research into these conditions. You can find out more about our team here. We work closely with the MSA Trust, the PSP Association, dieticians, community therapy teams, Parkinson’s disease specialist nurses, speech and language therapists and palliative care teams, and encourage them to join us in the clinic when they can.

If you've been diagnosed with PSP or CBS, you might find it useful to attend a local support group, organised by the PSP Association. To contact the Hampshire group please email Louisa Roberts-West, or for the Dorset group email John Kavanagh.

Clinic times

Clinics are usually held on the second and fourth Friday of each month, at the Royal South Hants Hospital in Southampton. We see patients from Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset, and occasionally people from further afield. Blue badge parking spaces are available near the hospital entrance.

Research

We can give you the opportunity to take part in research if you'd like to. We're currently taking part in the PROSPECT study (find out more from the MSA Trust and the PSP Association) as well as other research programmes.

If you're interested in taking part in research, call Sophie Varkonyi, clinical trials assistant, on 023 8120 6132.
