Eplilepsy surgery location and facilities

You can find our unit on Ward 10, located on the first floor of our Children's Hospital, with facilities available for adults along with a playroom.

If your child is with us for surgery then they will be cared for on our Neurology surgical ward for tests such as video telemetry and post-operative care. Some children may be admitted to a different ward, but our team will make sure that each patient receives comprehensive reviews from the specialists. If your child is admitted, we have a large ward round with members of our multi-disciplinary team who will be available if you need them or would like to ask a question. Most children with epilepsy are managed in the community and through outpatient clinics, we are also available via phone to help avoid any unnecessary admissions into hospital.

If you wish to contact the team to ask questions regarding the pathway or an update of where you are in the pathway then you should contact us on 0121 333 9999 and ask for the Neurology secretaries or by email, bwc.epilepsycoordinator@nhs.net.

If you wish to contact the team to ask clinical questions regarding your health, seizures or medications then you should call 0121 333 9999 and ask to speak to our Epilepsy Surgery Nurse.
