Do you agree it is important to raise awareness of essential tremor?

How do you think this can be achieved?

Would you like access to a focus ultrasound scanner in Scotland?

What benefits to the individual and the NHS do you think a focus ultrasound scanner could deliver?

This would greatly help a family member who was born and lives in Scotland

Because people with tremor see this as a better option than the current expensive and invasive treatments that are offered.
