The Epilepsy Scotland check-in service for anyone feeling lonely or anxious during this period of new restrictions due to Covid19. We are offering a check-in service that will allow your patients to discuss their concerns, ask any questions relating to their epilepsy or just have a conversation with someone who will check in to see how they are coping.
They promise to contact them at least once week to help support them through this difficult time. Anyone can register by calling our helpline on 0808 800 2200 or emailing email@example.com
