Strike action will be taking place from 7am Saturday 24 February 2024 to Thursday 28 February 2024. Please continue to attend your appointments unless you are contacted and told otherwise.

The strike action may mean our A&E is a lot busier than usual, which means the waiting times will be longer. If you need help which is not life threatening, please use 111, Pharmacies, GPs or Urgent Treatment Centres. Thank you for your understanding during this period.

Resources

We have launched a series of seven short educational films with the help of people with epilepsy and learning disabilities, in conjunction with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

The films explain hospital tests, epilepsy treatment, transition between services and how to live well with epilepsy. Each film has an accompanying booklet.

Please click on the relevant link below to view each film or download a copy of each booklet.
