The National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) has a comprehensive Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders Programme at Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and Singapore General Hospital (SGH). The programme emphasises the provision of excellent comprehensive clinical services coupled with strong research initiatives.
The Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders Centre is dedicated to the comprehensive care, research, education, and training of Parkinson disease and Movement Disorders. We have a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals and research scientists.
Since 2006, our Centre has been designated as a
Parkinson's Foundation (PF) Centre of Excellence. This is a designation awarded by the PF to healthcare institutions that excel in Parkinson-related comprehensive care, research and community outreach programmes. We are proud to be one of the two PF Centre of Excellence in Asia.
These clinics have trained Movement Disorders Specialists who provide comprehensive evaluation and care for patients with Parkinson disease, tremor disorders, gait disorders, and other abnormal movements. The emphasis is on patient-centred care with focus on the latest treatment strategies and the reduction of symptoms.
Our patients clinical condition is carefully monitored in the areas of motor function, activities of daily living, side effects of treatment, quality of life and memory. Nurse Clinicians provide education and support to patients and their caregivers about their disease and treatment.

In October 2007, the Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders Centre (PDMDC) at National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) initiated Singapore’s first-ever organised outreach programme for the Parkinson community. The Community Care Partners Programme (CCPP) for Parkinson disease is a partnership programme with community care facilities that have a core team of healthcare professionals who have completed our training workshops. The primary aim of the CCPP is to enhance the delivery of community care and support to the Parkinson community by tapping on the well-integrated network of community healthcare facilities in Singapore.
Since the launch of the Community Care Partners Programme on 20 October 2007, we now have over 15 Care Partners.
With our network of community care partners, patients with Parkinson and their families will have access to the best possible care in the community. Please approach your doctor or nurse clinician for more information on how you may be referred to our community care partners for the different types of services provided.

Exercise helps to maintain or improve flexibility in the joints and muscles, balance, general fitness and ability to move. After an initial assessment by a physiotherapist, suitable patients would participate in regular exercise classes. These classes are conducted in groups of up to 10 patients by physiotherapists. Patients are taught various exercises and strategies to cope with their walking, balance and posture, and encouraged to practise the exercises daily.
For enquiries, please contact the Tan Tock Seng Hospital Physiotherapy Department at (65) 6357 8307.
