Are there any more local groups where members/those with epilepsy can meet to talk about our condition with others who have epilepsy? My postcode is RH11 and my nearest town Crawley in West Sussex. Now that I am medically retired I have more time on my hands and would like to be involved in such a group.

Hi Rudi,

We currently don't have groups near Crawley. But if you contact our local manager, Marie Edgar, medgar@epilepsy.org.uk 01708 479536, she can talk to you about what we can do locally.
