Parkinson’s NSW’s InfoLine service provides expert support for anyone touched by Parkinson’s.

When you call the InfoLine on 1800 644 189 you will be speaking to Registered Nurses experienced on the topic of Parkinson’s – not a call centre staffed by generalists.

Our InfoLine nurses can provide evidence-based information, advice and referrals, and connect you with other Parkinson’s NSW support services.

These include regional specialist neurological nurses, counsellors, an exercise physiologist, a social worker and an NDIS Nurse Advocate who can guide you through the complexities of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Who will you talk to?

Sandra Stanton, our Customer Service Coordinator, will be your first point of contact. She will direct your call to the nurse most appropriate to answer your questions. Sandra can also help with general information about the services offered by Parkinson’s NSW, provide information and take enrolments for education seminars.
