We care for people with epilepsy, from their first seizure to helping them manage complex epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a common neurological condition, involving your brain. It causes repeated seizures.
A seizure happens because the way your brain cells usually work has been interrupted. Having 1 seizure does not necessarily mean you have epilepsy. If you have repeated unprovoked seizures, you’ll need investigation and possible treatment.
We offer a range of clinics, including for if you:
- are newly diagnosed
- need support with medicines
- are a teenager moving to adult services
- have a learning disability
- need women’s health support
