Coronavirus information

 

*A message from everyone at Epilepsy Society*

The welfare of people with epilepsy is at the centre of our response to Coronavirus.

As Coronavirus continues to spread, we are implementing a series of measures to continue to look after the health of our beneficiaries, staff, suppliers and partner organisations – both on our site at the Chalfont Centre - and around the country.

We are providing regular updates on guidance around the coronavirus and epilepsy via our website If you have any particular concerns, make sure you call your GP or epilepsy specialist.

All enquiries into Epilepsy Society via phone, email or online will be answered and dealt with as quickly as possible. Any post coming into our offices will be picked up and responded to - but please bear with us.

Our helpline will remain open although, due to demand, we may turn more to offering support by email and you can reach us on email helpline@epilepsysociety.org.uk From 6 April our opening hours will be extended for the helpline so we will be here for you Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm and on Wednesday evenings until 7:30pm.

Unfortunately, we have had to take the decision to close our main offices. We have also cancelled or postponed several events in our diary until we know more about the situation.

The Gowers specialist testing centre is now closed to any new referrals.

Our priority will always be the safety and wellbeing of our beneficiaries, supporters, suppliers and our staff.

We will be providing our most up-to-date information on both our social media channels and website.

For anyone who has worked so hard training for a challenge like the London Marathon or organising their own event to raise funds for us, thank you, we will support you in the coming months as we’re grateful for everything our supporters do to help us raise vital funds. Keep an eye on our fundraising pages for how to stay involved and keep in touch with our community.

Do keep in touch and stay safe and we are here for you all.

From the team at Epilepsy Society
