It must be so difficult for Chris. I struggle even for a day when car goes for MOT or service. I am so sorry Chris. It is unfair to have lived like this for months.

My Parkinson's nurse always wrote a report on me to the DVLA when my annual licence renewal came up. The DVLA or DWP will no longer accept reports from specialist nurses, the reports must be from a consultant or your GP. I am not under a consultant any more so where do I get the medical fitness to drive? My GP will not take on this role. My opinion is that specialist nurses know far more about you than some GP's or consultants

Do you think that clinicians ever err on the side of caution and stop someone driving without realising the full impact on the person with dementia?

I know many people have found sat nav improves their confidence and possibly their skill
Hazel Haworth
01:12:58
Sometimes we find that someone with dementia can drive the few short trips that they are used to taking, but that the test is around busy towns that they don't know and wouldn't attempt usually. So then they fail

I have had dash cams front and rear installed in my car which was my choice and decision

I believe Cardiff has a off road assessment now, not the 4x4 type
Dr Paul Donaghy

Q: Do you think that clinicians ever err on the side of caution and stop someone driving without realising the full impact on the person with dementia?
Zoe Williams
01:20:25
are there different referral processes and as such costs financially across the uk?
Zoe Williams
01:20:49
how has COVID impacted on review or appointments
Dr Paul Donaghy
01:21:10
I'll try to answer the question above. I think some clinicians lack confidence in assessing driving safety, this tends to result in them erring on the side of caution. I think with increased knowledge comes increased confidence - that is the aim of our guidelines.
Hazel Haworth
01:21:42
Thankyou

RE: Parkinson's disease nurse signing DVLA form, my understanding is that they could fill out the form and have it countersigned by a consultant on their team if they have one.
Dr Paul Donaghy
01:23:11
Here is the guideline: https://research.ncl.ac.uk/driving-and-dementia/downloads/Final%20Guideline.pdf
Chris Maddocks
01:24:17
I applied myself to pay for and attend a driving assessment. Before I could take the assessment, the assessment centre could not let me do the assessment as my licence had been revoked!!!
Dr Paul Donaghy
01:24:39
I would welcome feedback on the guidelines from people with dementia, friends/family and clinicians. The guidelines are are aimed at clinicians.
