If you are unhappy with your care or treatment from your hospital, it would be a good idea to talk to somebody there. This could be your epilepsy specialist or epilepsy nurse. They may be able to reassure you, or make sure that the problem doesn’t happen again.
If you are still unhappy, talk to your GP (family doctor) about your concerns and ask about other options for your treatment. This may include getting an opinion from a different epilepsy specialist. As a patient, you have the right to ask for another opinion. Your GP can arrange this if they feel it is in your best interest.
If you wish to make a complaint about your care and treatment from your hospital, contact the NHS Trust responsible for that hospital.
