EPILEPSY AWARE AT THE WELSH ASSEMBLY
Two and a half thousand people could, and should, be turning up on the Welsh Assembly steps on Wednesday May 20th. That is the number of people estimated to have epilepsy in the capital city.
This is their opportunity of making their concerns about epilepsy services known to the Minister, Edwina Hart and Assembly members Lorraine Barrett and Jonathan Morgan.
Epilepsy is the most common chronic neurological condition in Wales, acknowledged by the Welsh Assembly Ministers who have recently published a major document aimed at highlighting and improving the services available in Wales to people with epilepsy. The first of its kind in the UK.
Epilepsy Wales, who run a support group at Sbectrwm, Fairwater, together with other members of the All Wales Epilepsy Forum, have organised this event at the Welsh Assembly during National Epilepsy Week.
