Judy Newton

Clinic Manager
MND National Lead/Consultant Nurse

Following on from three years working as Scotland’s first Lead MND Nurse Consultant, Judy accepted the additional role of Nurse and Clinic Manager of the Anne Rowling Clinic. The additional appointment will see Judy leading the delivery of clinical care and research to improve the lives of people with neurological conditions including multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s and dementias.

Having trained as a Registered General Nurse in Glasgow in 1988, Judy’s career led straight to that of neuroscience nursing. Judy’s first MND post was that of MND Clinical Nurse Specialist for the South East of Scotland in 1998. Judy completed a Master’s Degree in Cognitive Assessment in MND, and following the announcement to double the number of MND nurses in Scotland, was appointed to the newly created post of MND Nurse Consultant in 2016, funded by Scottish Government, MND Scotland and the University of Edinburgh.
