FOR PARENTS / CARERS

Welcome to the parent and carers virtual information pack. You are welcome to browse the other pages of this site but most of those are designed for neurologists, paediatricians and specialist nurses working with children and young people with epilepsy.

SETPEG cannot offer advice to individual queries about a child’s treatment or management. We recommend you contact your child’s epilepsy team or GP in the first instance. If you need more immediate advice contact NHS direct www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk or by dialling 111 or 0845 4647 from some areas.

Please click on the links below for more information about a wide range of topics related to the different types of epilepsy, including care, first aid, treatments and education.
