Specialist nursing staff have been holding information sessions for the public to mark Parkinson’s Awareness Week which runs until Saturday.

The Parkinson’s Disease Nurse Specialists (PDNS), have been in Tickhill Road Hospital in Balby, spreading the word about how they can support a patient and their family or carers once the diagnosis of Idiopathic Parkinson’s has been made.
