An event to raise awareness about dementia, epilepsy and Parkinson’s Disease is to be staged in Doncaster.

Staff from a number of organisations across the borough will be on hand in the Civic Offices, in Doncaster town centre, on May 21, during Epilepsy Awareness Week, to promote the effects of the conditions and the services on offer to support residents who suffer from them.

The awareness raising event, which will include staff from Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH), Doncaster Council, Public Health, Parkinson’s Disease UK, patient groups and the Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group, will take place between 10am and 2pm.

Wayne Goddard, of NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “A number of organisations from across Doncaster are working together to highlight how epilepsy, dementia and Parkinson’s Disease can affect a person and also what services are in place to support them.

“If you have epilepsy, dementia or Parkinson’s Disease, or are a carer for a relative or friend with one of the conditions, why not call in to see the staff to either find out more information or to get any questions you have answered.”
