About Epilepsy Society
The National Society for the Employment of Epileptics (NSEE) was launched in 1892 by a group of London philanthropists and medical men.
Epilepsy Society is the UK’s leading provider of epilepsy services. Through our cutting edge research, awareness campaigns, information resources and expert care, we work for everyone affected by epilepsy in the UK.
Over the course of a history that spans three centuries, the DNA of both Epilepsy Society and Chalfont St Peter have become intrinsically entwined. The village is very much a part of the life blood of the charity and vice versa.
How we support you
Our campaigns team lobby government and decision-makers on the issues that matter to people with epilepsy. From safer medicines for pregnant women to the dangers of online trolling, and from medicines supply to public transport access, we raise awareness of the daily challenges facing people with epilepsy.
Epilepsy Society's confidential helpline is available for anyone affected by epilepsy. We welcome calls from people with epilepsy, their families and friends, as well as professionals such as doctors, nurses, care workers, teachers and employers.
The Chalfont Centre and our Gowers unit lead the way in the most advanced techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
Dedicated services for professionals
This area of the site is aimed at people with a professional interest in epilepsy including GPs, Nurses, pharmacists, commissioners and doctors.
Our courses are available to a wide range of people looking to develop their understanding of epilepsy for professional or personal reasons. Delegates include carers, school escorts, post-graduate students as well as commercial organisations, GP surgeries and drug company representatives.
subtitle: Join us
Epilepsy Society’s Chalfont Centre is unique in bringing together intellectual capital to form a powerhouse multidisciplinary team who contribute to a wide ranging spectrum of research. It is only by working together that we will be able to translate the findings of our research into clinical medicine.
Taking care of your overall wellbeing is a vital part of living with epilepsy. For some people, having information or support can help.
We help every resident enjoy life to the full. We recognise that everyone is different and we tailor activities to meet each individual’s needs and interests.
