A debate about epilepsy took place yesterday in the House of Commons. Raising a huge array of issues on behalf of people living with the condition, many hope it will begin the process of improving care, support and awareness of the condition.
An article in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) has called attention to how much more might be done to avoid unnecessary deaths in epilepsy. Could primary care doctors be in the best position to monitor risks?
Celebrities who put pen to paper and doodled for charity have raised over £10,500 for Epilepsy Action. A host of famous faces had their scribbles auctioned off on eBay over ten days, with Turner prize-winner Grayson Perry’s doodle going for the highest price at £2,650. It is the third time his doodle has fetched major funds for Epilepsy Action’s National Doodle Day.
