2010 General election result

What a dramatic week for politics!

With the first formal coalition Government for 70 years, it's clear just how important our campaigning work will be, at a time when funding is so tight.

We've been campaigning on our 3 Pledges for Parkinson's manifesto, calling on the new Government to act on things that people with Parkinson's say are priorities and make economic sense.

Parkinson's UK wants everyone affected to get the right health and social care, no matter where they live. We want people with Parkinson's to have the financial support they need. And we want long-term investments in neurological research, to help us find better treatments and a cure.

Our local groups have been campaigning throughout the election, inviting their local candidates to meet with them, and asking them to sign up to our pledges.

Of the 220 parliamentary candidates who signed up, 40 were elected and many will be playing a part in the coalition. We'll be working hard to make sure the new Government sees the value in protecting Parkinson's services like specialist nurses and funding for medical research, which save money and help people stay independent.

Please join our campaigns network, to get updates on the campaign and how you can help, and let us know below about any contact you’ve had with your local MP.
