This week, we joined other charities to highlight the misinformation and errors shared through the Channel 4 programme, Britain's Tourettes Mystery.
The programme was factually incorrect and misleading in its presentation. We support the corrections and clarity from Tourettes Action and other health organisations.
Dan McLean from PANS PANDAS UK, said: “Britain’s Tourette’s Mystery was an opportunity lost. A substantial increase in neurological conditions in children and young people is a potential healthcare crisis. The programme could have busted myths instead of broadcasting fresh ones. Scarlett Moffatt is a fine advocate for demystifying complex and stigmatised conditions, sadly the programme has bemused and hurt so many of the people it might have supported".
