Tourette’s syndrome featured on BBC1
The BBC 1 drama series Casualty is running a story on Saturday (21st February 21.15 BBC1) featuring a young woman with Tourette Syndrome. I haven’t personally seen the script but the charity Tourettes Action (www.Tourettes-action.org.uk ) were consulted. Since Tourette Syndrome affects approximately 300,000 children and adults in the UK it is good to see the condition making an appearance on prime time TV. Watch and let us know what you think.
