Can't Wait

People with Parkinson’s can’t wait. Can’t wait for appointments. For mental health support. For medication.

We need your help to make sure people with Parkinson's get the care they need. We’re starting with access to the right doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. 

We want NHS England to have a plan that allows people with Parkinson’s to access consultants, nurses, physiotherapists, mental health professionals, speech therapists and occupational therapists. And we’re calling on new local integrated care boards (ICBs) to do that. 

Campaigners share why they can't wait for Parkinson's healthcare services

Campaigners share their story

Campaigners in Birmingham showed their support for our Can't Wait campaign. They gathered at a mural in the city centre that highlights the urgency of the NHS workforce crisis.

Write to the health secretary and urge her to publish more detail on how people with Parkinson’s will see their access to healthcare improve.

Help us make sure Parkinson’s services are improved now, for the future of the NHS and our community. It's easy to get involved and there are lots of ways you can help.

Step 1: Write to the health secretary

The government has published their long awaited workforce plan. But it’s missing key details on how people with Parkinson’s will see their access to healthcare improve. Write to the health secretary to urge them to publish more details.

Step 2: Write to your integrated care board

Make a difference locally. Write to your local integrated care board to make sure that people with Parkinson's are being listened to.
