Call for better care for epilepsy in Lincolnshire


An epilepsy sufferer in Lincolnshire has claimed there is a lack of expert health care in the county for the condition.

Julie Wells has epilepsy and has set up her own support group.

In a statement, the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (UHLT) said: "We are reviewing and developing neurology services within Lincolnshire and looking at increasing the use of specialist nurses within all aspects of the service in the coming months."

There are about half a million people in Britain who have epilepsy.
