General Election Manifesto 2024

With the general election on 4 July 2024, we have rounded up the issues that affect the 630,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK into three topics:

  • Health and social care
  • Justice
  • Work and benefits

You can read the Epilepsy Action Manifesto in full or download a version below.

The issues

Health and social care: We need epilepsy to be prioritised within health and social care and the shortage of specialist nurses and neurologists to be addressed.


Two hands framing the scales of justice


Justice: We need justice for the most vulnerable people with epilepsy to ensure everyone is treated fairly.

Work and benefits: People with epilepsy need to be empowered to access work and benefits so they are able to live independently.


Our manifesto was created with support from the Neurological Alliance and INQUEST.
