The workshop will explore ways to improve seizure control including, surgery for epilepsy; vagus nerve stimulation (VNS); stress management and taking steps to a better life with epilepsy self management.

Sold out - bookings are now closed.

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. These events support and encourage people whose seizures are not controlled to ask for better treatment and encourage increased self-management.
