Inquiry on anxiety and depression: have your say
Professionals are being called on to respond to a groundbreaking inquiry into anxiety and depression in Parkinson's being launched by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Parkinson's.
The purpose of the APPG inquiry is to establish the current provision of mental health support for people with Parkinson's experiencing anxiety or depression, and to make recommendations to the government and other decision-makers to improve the system for people living with the condition.
Have your say
To identify how access to quality mental health services can be improved, the APPG needs to hear from professionals, professional bodies and commissioners, as well as people affected by Parkinson's who have experienced anxiety or depression.
Your insights and expertise will directly shape the final report and its recommendations to ensure people with Parkinson's can access timely and quality mental health support.
The deadline for responses is 25 August 2017.
You can also take part by downloading the terms of reference (PDF, 150KB) and responding by email or post.
To ensure the inquiry is successful and the government listens to the APPG’s recommendations, it is essential that professionals submit evidence.
If you know anyone affected by Parkinson's who would like to respond, there is a separate online survey.
APPG across the UK
While the APPG is a cross-UK group of MPs and peers, this inquiry will focus on health services within England.
However the APPG is keen to receive examples of good practice from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
If you have any questions about the inquiry, please contact Parkinson’s UK who provide the secretariat for the APPG at [email protected] or on 020 7963 9349.
