I recently met with Parkinson's UK to show my support for World Parkinson’s Day.

More than 12,000 people in Scotland have Parkinson’s - and around 145,000 people in the UK. It is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world and currently there is no cure for this complex condition.

With more than 40 symptoms, everyone’s experience of Parkinson’s is different, making it hard for people to understand without first-hand experience.

Parkinson’s UK’s visit to Westminster was designed to start conversations and increase understanding among MPs about what it’s like to live with Parkinson’s or as the care partner of someone with the condition.

It was incredibly powerful to hear people like Alison (pictured) telling their Parkinson’s story and just how essential it is to get access to the right healthcare for this complex condition.
