PDS announces release of new documents
13th August 2009

A leading charity in the UK has committed more resources to informing its patrons and associates about the problems and issues surrounding Parkinson's disease.

The Parkinson's Disease Society (PDS) has revealed that it has now created a major catalogue and order form database on its website at parkinsons.org.uk, where over 200 free publications can be accessed by those affected by the neurodegenerative disorder.

Symptoms, guidance and advice on the likes of care homes are all available from the charity, which aims to deliver as much information without making anything confusing to its audience.

To make it as easy as possible, all the releases, audio tapes, DVDs and merchandise are grouped together by subject in the online database.

People are able to order up to 49 copies of publications free of charge.

According to the PDS, one in 500 people - around 120,000 citizens of the UK - have the condition, with around 10,000 people in the UK diagnosed each year.
