Epilepsy can be a life-changing diagnosis. Unpredictable seizures, loss of independence, side-effects of medication - all of these can have a devastating impact on someone's quality of life. Epilepsy Society is here to ensure everyone has the best possible chance at accurate diagnosis, treatment and personal support.
