Epilepsy Society is the largest medical charity in epilepsy in the UK. Our headquarters are in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire and it works in close partnership with the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. Our doctors and scientists at the charity are making a major contribution to the world's research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, pioneering novel diagnostic techniques and making possible improvements in both surgical and medical treatment of the condition. Nationally, Epilepsy Society creates and provides world leading epilepsy information services in more than 100 healthcare settings in the UK. The services are manned by trained volunteers who provide information and a listening ear to people affected by epilepsy. We also campaign for improved services for people living with epilepsy in the UK as well as continually working to raise awareness of epilepsy and overcome the stigma attached to the condition. Epilepsy Society also offers a national helpline: 01494 601 400. Epilepsy Soceity was first established in Chalfont St Peter, Bucks in 1892.
