We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

2015

This page is about National Epilepsy Week 2015. Find out how you can get involved in 2016.

This National Epilepsy Week Seize Control posterwe’re continuing our work empowering people to Seize Control of their epilepsy, demand better care and access to relevant treatments. We’re also asking health professionals about any barriers they face when trying to optimise treatment for patients.

There are different ways to get involved right now - and we’d love your help.

The Seize Control campaign launched last autumn, with the aim to help people whose seizures are poorly controlled. Of the 600,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK, around 288,000 are still experiencing seizures. We estimate that with better treatment 108,000 more people could become seizure free. The campaign supports you to ask for better treatment if your seizures are not controlled.
