Duncan backs charity call for fair care for Parkinson’s

Duncan as among the thousands of people supporting the Fair Care for Parkinson’s Petition that was presented to the Government last week.

parkinsons.jpgThe petition, signed by over 14,000 people to demand fair care for people with Parkinson’s, was presented to Care Services Minister Paul Burstow at an event in the House of Commons.

The Fair Care for Parkinson’s Petition calls on the Government to protect Parkinson’s services and make sure that people with the condition receive quality care that meets national standards, wherever they live.

Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s UK brings people with the condition, their carers and families together via a network of local groups, the charity’s website and its free confidential helpline. Specialist nurses, supporters and staff provide information and training on every aspect of Parkinson’s.

Duncan said:

“I would like to pledge my support for high quality, cost effective care in the Chippenham constituency and across the UK, to make sure that we protect Parkinson’s services and ensure that we listen to the concerns of all people affected by the condition.”
