The epilepsy service covers West Lancashire, Sefton as well as adjoining areas. The team consists of a paediatric consultant with expertise in epilepsy and a paediatric epilepsy specialist nurse.
At present the specialist nurse covers the West Lancashire area and we are working on achieving this provision for the other areas.
There is a weekly epilepsy clinic on Tuesday morning and alternate weekly epilepsy clinic on Wednesday morning. There are also intermittent joint neurology clinics for children with complex epilepsy held in in Ormskirk hospital, allowing specialist care including inpatient admission and outpatient follow up closer to home.
Referrals are accepted from GPs and other health professionals.
