Epilepsy specialist nursing team (adult services)
The epilepsy clinical nurse specialists work autonomously in specialist nurse led clinics, and also work closely alongside Consultant Neurologists and a variety of health and social care professionals in order to support people with epilepsy to have the best chance of managing their condition.
The epilepsy service is available to those people who have a definite and confirmed diagnosis of epilepsy. If you are newly diagnosed you will usually be referred directly via the consultant neurologist.
If you are a health professional and wish to refer to the epilepsy nursing service, we currently accept referrals via letter, telephone or please email clinical information to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you or a member of your family have a confirmed diagnosis and wish to be seen by our team, please contact the specialist nurses admin team on 01432 677349.
The epilepsy service is available 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, except Bank/Public holidays.
