The Parkinson’s Excellence Network is working to transform health and care services for people with Parkinson's across the UK. We bring together and support health and social care professionals to better care for people with Parkinson's. We share best practice, resources, education and support improvements to services for people with Parkinson’s and their families.

Whether you’re living with Parkinson’s, caring for someone that does or would just like to learn more, you can help improve Parkinson’s care. Join this session to find out what's going on and how you could get involved!
