MORE ABOUT OUR MEETINGS :
Our meetings are somewhere to chat in a relaxed atmosphere. We invite specialists in Epilepsy and Neurology – professionals in the field to come and talk at our monthly meetings. In each of their case the speakers aim is to share their experience and knowledge, to help face the challenges that epilepsy can create.
To find out more about the group, or to get links to websites offering further advice about Epilepsy, just click on the tabs at the top of the page.
We hold monthly social events at various places in Bristol throughout the year. To find out more about when our next meeting is, check our ‘Calendar’ page above.
Although our meetings and talks remain the backbone of the group the aim is to give everyone a chance to meet in an informal setting, as variety is the spice of life!
