We have continued to be guided by Government and NHS requests in relation to Covid-19.
The Committee has and will continue to monitor the advice given by Parkinson’s UK, Parkinson’s UK in Scotland, as well as NHS and Scottish Government.
The information below relates to the original onset of Coronavirus in 2020. We are reviewing and will be amending and removing information that is outdated or no longer relevant. Please bear with us while we do so.
