Epilepsy Surgery Service referrals

We welcome referrals from Epilepsy Specialist Nurses, Neurologists and GPs.

We run a very busy tertiary epilepsy surgery centre as part of a well-established Epilepsy Programme.

We are part of EpiCARE - a European Reference Network (ERN) for people with rare and complex epilepsies - and also work closely with epilepsy charities, particularly SUDEP Action, Epilepsy Society and Epilepsy Action.

Criteria for an Epilepsy Surgery referral

We accept referrals if the patient:

  • has tried two or more anti-epileptic drugs (AED) that have not stopped or significantly reduced seizures
  • experiences focal seizures (seizures that begin in a specific area of the brain).

Epileptic seizures explained - www.epilepsy.org.uk

We welcome referrals from Neurologists, GPs and Epilepsy Specialist Nurses.

If you are a patient with medication resistant epilepsy, please discuss a referral with the person who oversees the care of your epilepsy.

If you are a medical practitioner, and feel that a patient could be considered for surgery, please do contact us.
