Gus. Just watched it.  They made it clear the diagnosis was essential tremor not Parkinson's. Maybe that and the plot's need for the DBS to provide instant results so a virtuoso could play again was why PDUK didn't flag up the show or weren't told.

Either way as I understand it. DBS for Parkinson's isn't an instant fix and requires adjustments that can take months to fine tune.

Hi gus,

Thank you for letting us know about this, I didn't see the Holby City episode. I'm just finding out whether anyone in the team was involved in providing advice on this. 

When we know about Parkinson's or Parkinson's treatments being discussed on TV or on the radio we do try and provide information through our social media channels where we can, and this is something we are working to do more in the future.

Best wishes,

Joanne

Digital team.
