Help is at hand for people with epilepsy needing to talk to someone during the festive season.

Epilepsy Society’s helpline operators will be waiting on 01494 601400 (national call rate) to answer questions, give up-to-date information, and to give callers time to talk and emotional support this Christmas.

Christine Brock, the charity’s helpline manager, said: “Christmas can be a difficult and stressful time for many people. Our helpline is open for anyone with epilepsy who has concerns, or for anyone who is worried about a family member or friend.”

During the holiday period the confidential epilepsy helpline will be open: on Christmas Eve until 1pm; closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day; open from 9am until 1pm on 31 December; closed on New Year’s Day.

The helpline will be back to normal from 2 January 2014.
