§ Mr. Bowis
The long-term care of people with epilepsy is a professional matter for individual clinicians. The level of service available to meet the needs of sufferers is for determination by health authorities in the light of local priorities and available resources.157W
In 1993, the journal "Seizure" published a document on "Epilepsy Needs" drawn up by specialists in this field. This contains a helpful overview and epidemiology and describes the range of services available.
We have made funding available to the British Epilepsy Association/David Lewis centre to set up a model epilepsy clinic.
