Our specialist epilspesy nurses are today hosting a Current Issues in Epilepsy Conference.

The conference was arranged by Andrew Carr, Jenny Kelly and Judith Vincent, (paediatrics) at the Briar Court Hotel, Birchencliffe. Around 50 specialist healthcare professionals from across West Yorskhire attended to find out more the condition and how individuals, families and carers can be supported. Experts at the Trust delivered a series of talks including Consultant Paediatrician Dr Sal Uka on Children’s Adherence with Epilepsy and Consultant Neurologist Dr Walied Mowafi  who spoke about on Differential Diagnosis.

Epilepsy Nurse Specialist Andrew Carr chaired the morning, and the afternoon is chaired by Epilepsy Nurse Specialist Jenny Kelly.

Epilepsy Nurse Specialist Jenny Kelly said: “We wanted to set up something local as we know we have the expertise here. We wanted to share it with a broader audiences of colleagues interested in this epilepsy health care. We are really pleased with today’s turn-out as it was almost double what we had anticipated"
