Welcome to the Edinburgh Branch of Parkinson’s UK.

We aim to help people with Parkinson’s, their families and friends in Edinburgh and Lothians in any way we can.

We provide:

  • Opportunities for members to meet, share experience and support each other.
  • Information about health and life style issues.
  • Group activities.

We also represent local Parkinson’s interests to NHS Lothian and other  agencies.

We want standards of care and medical facilities for Parkinson’s in Lothian to be the best.

To join the branch please fill in the form here. If you would like more information, or if we can help in any way please email the Hon Secretary.
