Kesia Dugdale MSP 19 WHO 2015 NEW

National Epilepsy Week, 18-24 May 2015

During that week the World Health Organisation passed a new resolution inviting countries to introduce coordinated action plans for epilepsy. Consortium members encouraged MSPs to lend their support to this and to offer similar endorsement for the implementation of revised SIGN guidelines (143) for adults with epilepsy.
