Free flu vaccine update

We recently shared with you news that people with epilepsy were to be included in the free flu vaccine group. We have since been told this is not the case and the Department of Health and Social Services have admitted this was their mistake. We are very sorry for the confusion this has caused and continue to campaign relentlessly on this issue, but meantime want to reassure you that you are still entitled to request a free flu vaccine from your GP and we have a letter from our Medical Director to support your request .

Seizures and hot summers

Thank you to everyone who took part in our recent surveys looking at the impact of excessively high temperatures on seizures. These have provided us with some invaluable insight into the link between the two and will help to influence our work as we experience increasingly hot summers.
