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.
