A TEAM which provides help and advice to people suffering from Parkinson’s Disease held an information day at Montagu Hospital.

Staff from the neuroservices Parkinson’s team, who work for Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH), were at the hospital on Tuesday and Thursday last week.

They manned an information stall and gave out advice leaflets to visitors giving details of the work they do to help people with the condition.

This was part of a series of events to mark national Parkinson’s Awareness Week.

A spokeswoman for RDaSH said: “Our team has a base at Montagu Hospital and it was a good opportunity to make people aware of what they do.

“They provide support for people with Parkinson’s in many ways in terms of assisting with advice on their symptoms and liasing with social services to make sure their care needs are taken care of. The team also gave advice on how to raise money for the Parkinson’s charities.”
