Request for feedback on epilepsy study idea

Researchers from the University of Liverpool are thinking about doing a study on epilepsy. It will look at what those with epilepsy and their family and friends want from the ambulance service and other health professionals when a seizure occurs.

It will try to answer questions such as, if an ambulance comes, where would you like to be taken and how might this change depending on where the seizure happened, who was with you and what sort of seizure it was? How would you like the ambulance to be told what you prefer? And, finally, if you have been taken to A&E for epilepsy, how would you like the epilepsy specialists to be supporting you in the longer-term?

The researchers have produced an outline of what they are thinking of doing. They would now like to hear the views of people whose lives have been impacted by epilepsy. They will adjust the study on the basis of your feedback. If you are interested in hearing more about the study and then sharing your thoughts, please kindly contact the team via email (adam.noble@liv.ac.uk) or phone (0151 794 5993). All your comments will be treated confidentially. They would like to hear your thoughts within the next 7 days.
