About Us

The North of Scotland Parkinson's Research Interest Group (NoSPRIG) is part of a nationwide network supporting Parkinson's UK, by increasing awareness and involvement in research at a regional level. We comprise people with Parkinson's, carers, health professionals, scientists, and interested volunteers.


NoSPRIG is unique due to its huge geographical spread (Grampian, Highlands, the Northern Isles & the Western Isles), making one of our key priorities to encourage research involvement to reach some of the most remote people with Parkinson's and health professionals in Britain.
