February 2018 – Parkinson’s UK

In February we welcomed  Richard Pilkington from Parkinson’s UK, who came to speak about the condition as part of their programme of raising awareness.

Richard explained that you live with the condition, rather than dying from it.   Research is ongoing to try to find out what causes it, and then how to cure it.   He told us of the wide range of effects which the condition causes, about the various medication and treatment currentlly offered, and also about the local support groups.
