Epilepsy Aware

Epilepsy Action has begun a campaign to make GP practices and pharmacies more aware of the needs of people with epilepsy. When you see one of these stickers:

it means the practice or pharmacy is epilepsy-friendly and has committed to three principles as outlined below:

Epilepsy Awareness stickers
  • They are committed to providing their customers and patients with information about epilepsy and their medication
  • They are committed to discussing issues about anti-epileptic medication with their customers including:
    • potential side-effects
    • consistency of supply
    • drug interactions
  • They are willing to provide their customers with contact details for Epilepsy Action's freephone Epilepsy Helpline 0808 800 5050 and website: www.epilepsy.org.uk, should they require further information

If you would like to see your GP practice or pharmacy on this list, then get the practice manager or pharmacist to contact Epilepsy Action. They should speak to Maxine Gulley, Administration Officer, email mgulley@epilepsy.org.uk tel 0113 210 8800

Listed below are the GP practices and pharmacies that have joined the campaign (by postcode region). This list will be regularly updated, as more pharmacies and practices become 'Epilepsy Aware':
