Branch meetings

Our next meeting will be at .

The Parkinson's UK Oxford and District Branch meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the W I Hall, North Hinksey Lane, Botley, Oxford OX2 0LT. Meetings begin at 7pm and end around 9pm.

Our monthly meetings usually have a speaker. Recent meetings have informed us about research activities at the University, other Parkinson's-related concerns, and topics of general interest. Some meetings are devoted to group discussion and feedback. At the end there is time for tea and coffee when members can chat together.
