Around 145,000 people in the UK alone are living with Parkinson’s (that equates to around 1 person in every 350). This is expected to increase by approximately 18% by the year 2025 and is set to almost double by 2065. It is predicted that 1 person in 37 will receive a diagnosis of Parkinson’s during their lifetime.*
Cure Parkinson’s is committed to slowing, stopping and even reversing the condition with the ultimate aim of restoring quality of life.
If you are worried about health problems that you think might be Parkinson’s, make an appointment to discuss your concerns with your family GP.
