Dr Lucy Strens, Consultant Neurologist at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust comments:
"I've seen first-hand what a life-changing experience being given a Parkinson's diagnosis is. It is our job as professionals to ensure that we provide - and signpost to - support and information at all steps along the journey.
"We do not have a cure for Parkinson's but there are many ways to manage the different symptoms (and not just with tablets). Parkinson's UK's film is a great resource for people recently diagnosed to show them how other people have come to terms with the condition and are managing life with Parkinson's."
Duration: 21 minutes 18 seconds
