Bill 112 for epilepsy – second reading postponed

7 Mar 2011

We are disappointed to let you know that the second reading of Bill 112, Epilepsy and Related Conditions, did not go ahead in the UK Parliament on Friday 4 March as planned.

This is a set-back, but is not unexpected. This is the point in the process that most ten minute rule bills fail. We hoped that by pressuring the government, they would help make sure the second reading was held.

Statement on epilepsy and Ivan Cameron [updated 26 February, 9.45am]

26 Feb 2009

We do not yet know the circumstances of Ivan’s death but we do know that he had severe epilepsy, among other conditions.

Our thoughts are with the family and we hope that they will be given the space to grieve in private.

There are 58,000 children with epilepsy in the UK. Thankfully 70 per cent  of these children have their seizures well controlled by medication. However, over 17,000 children have uncontrolled epilepsy and experience seizures that can affect their daily life. They may also have other disabilities and medical conditions.
