The epilepsy service offers a diagnosis and treatment services for adults with epilepsy.
We offer a rapid access first fit clinic for suspected epilepsy, and specialist clinics for pregnant women with epilepsy.
People with epilepsy have recurrent unprovoked seizures – sudden and brief disruptions to normal brain activity. There are different types of seizures, depending on whether the disruption to brain activity happens in a specific part of the brain or in all of the brain at once.
To make non urgent referrals, or If you have any queries about non-urgent referrals or appointments, please visit the Neurosciences Booking Service page.
