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.
