More than half a million people in the UK have epilepsy and one third have seizures that cannot be controlled through available anti-epileptic drugs. There are 1,000 deaths from the condition every year, including many children and young adults. Epilepsy can have a devastating effect on people and their families, affecting all aspects of their lives.
Epilepsy Society is the UK’s leading provider of epilepsy services. Through their cutting edge research, awareness campaigns, information resources and expert care, they work for everyone affected by epilepsy in the UK.
Their research is driven by the desire to understand what has caused the epilepsy in each individual person, to be able to identify the best therapy from the outset, and to make this expertise widely available.
