Bedfordshire Community Epilepsy Specialist Nurse Service
Who We Are
Bedfordshire Community Adult Epilepsy Specialist Nurse Service supports individuals aged over 18 with confirmed epilepsy. The service is community based, working collaboratively with hospitals, GP practices, community services and the voluntary sector; focusing on self-care and maintaining independence.
What Do We Offer?
The team offer personalised care planning and support, training and guidance where needed and hope to reduce hospital re-admissions and associated health needs for their service users.
The service is developing a range of easy read guides that will be added to the ELFT website in the coming weeks. Click here to visit their page.
This service aims to be accessible to all, with appointments being offered virtually through a secure service, allowing the person with epilepsy to be in a comfortable environment.
Alternative sources of appointments can be given to those who would like to have a face-to-face consultation. The service will also offer regular telephone clinics to those on their caseload, to offer ongoing support.
