Epilepsy information event for Saltcoats

WANT to know more about epilepsy?

Don’t miss your chance to find out more about epilepsy! Visit us at the Epilepsy Scotland information stand on October 11 at Sainsbury’s Superstore, Saltcoats from 11am – 3pm.

Trained staff will be on hand to listen to your questions and talk about our freephone confidential helpline and our website packed with epilepsy information. You can also pick up a free Epilepsy Scotland guide.

Epilepsy Scotland provides training in understanding and managing epilepsy. It helps raise awareness of epilepsy by giving talks to schools and community groups. It also campaigns for better healthcare and is lobbying health boards, including Ayrshire and Arran, to increase the number of specialist nurses in Scotland.

Our Contact Team are keen to meet people in your area and we’re encouraging people living in and around Saltcoats to find out more about epilepsy. It is a great opportunity to meet us and find out more about local services.  We look forward to seeing you there!
