Epilepsy unit in Scotland praised by visiting MSP

A Scottish minister has praised the work of a leading epilepsy unit in Glasgow.

Shona Robison, the cabinet secretary for health and wellbeing, praised the 'world-class services' of the Quarriers’ Scottish Epilepsy Centre in Govan, Glasgow during a visit.

Ms Robison said: “The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre is the first of its kind to offer an enhanced service which will significantly improve quality of life for those living with the condition.

“The centre is a great example of the third sector and NHS Scotland working together to build and deliver world-class services to people with epilepsy, providing a unique care package for patients.”

The centre, which was opened in 2013, is the only one of its kind in Scotland and offers assessment and diagnosis for people with complex or uncertain cases of epilepsy.
