Parkinson’s UK is supporting the Neurological Alliance a#BackThe1in6 campaign. We’re calling on governments across the UK to prioritise services for the 1 in 6 people living with a neurological condition and establish a Neuro Taskforce.  

You can help by signing the #BackThe1in6 petition.

Last year, we asked you and thousands of people across the UK with neurological conditions to take part in My Neuro Survey. 

Over 8,500 people shared their experiences, including significant numbers of people with Parkinson’s.

Now the results are in and they make for troubling reading. People are experiencing: delays to life-changing treatment and care; a lack of mental health support for their conditions; and feeling that they don’t have enough information to manage their condition.

It is clear that urgent action needs to be taken to help the 1 in 6.

Sign the petition

As a member of the Neurological Alliance: a coalition of organisations who campaign to transform the quality of health and care services for people who live with a neurological condition. We’re calling for a Neuro Taskforce to be established by governments across the UK.


We want the Neuro Taskforce to create a fully-funded plan for a radical transformation of services for people with neurological conditions, and provide healthcare professionals with the support needed to deliver this. 


We want  to make sure that the next My Neuro Survey results find a vastly improved picture of high quality neuro health and care services.


Please sign the petition and share with your family and friends where you can.
