'Get it on time' across the Atlantic

Our 'Get it on time' campaign, first launched in April 2006, has helped thousands of people with Parkinson's get their medication on time when in hospital in the UK. And now it's helping people with Parkinson's across the USA and Canada too.

The Parkinson Society Central and Northern Ontario has taken our campaign model and adapted it for people with Parkinson's and professionals working with people with Parkinson's in Canada.

To date, more than 50 information sessions have been given at long-term care facilities, retirement homes and Parkinson's support groups in Ontario, and the campaign has plans to expand to Ontario hospitals later in 2011.

As well as in Canada, The National Parkinson's Foundation in the USA is currently designing materials to launch its new campaign 'Aware in Care' - which was also inspired by 'Get it on time'.

We're delighted that our campaign has been so inspirational and is helping to make sure that as many people with Parkinson's as possible get their medication on time, every time.

Our own campaign has helped educate hundreds of professionals about the importance of good medicines management. And it supports people with Parkinson's to get their medication on time, every time when in hospital, care homes or in their own homes.
