Maria Nicola started this petition to Thresa May (Parliment)

My Partner suffers with epilepsy and is unstable. When we go to the GP or minor injury, they do not have much information or knowledge about epilepsy.

We need support to ensure every doctor surgery or minor surgery has an epilepsy specialist to make things alot easier and clear. We need support and everyone help to make this happen.

Epilepsy  is not a well known condition and there's not alot of information out there considering there are loads of different types of seizures and everyone varies.

It a also brings a wide range of mental health issues that can occur, such as isolation and discrimination. My Partner suffers with anxiety, many people with epilsepy may suffer with anxiety.

Main triggers for my partner is stress, not eating properly or drinking properly along with tiredness.

Whilst other people may suffer seizures by flashing lights. 

Different types of seizure is clonic clusters, gramel, partial, focal seizure, Generalised onset seizures and many more.

This all varies by each individual. If someone is having a seizure they won't know what happend till the after affects and it come to people's awareness and understanding to identify the type of seizure and most importantly how long the person was in the seizure.

If a seizure last 5min that's when the ambulance needs to be called. Unless it's unexpected for a certin type of person I.E they never had a seizure before.

 

This is very close to my heart and I believe change won't happen until we make it happen and I appreciate everyone time in reading this and supporting this.
