The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre opened its doors to patients on Monday 15 April. The centre, the only one of its kind in Scotland, is a state-of-the-art treatment and diagnostic facility for people with the most complex forms of epilepsy.

The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre has been carefully designed around the needs of patients with epilepsy. The building has twelve comfortable assessment bedrooms. It also provides consultation rooms for outpatients, psychology facilities, a research resource, telemedicine suite and a large seminar room.

Locating the centre close to Glasgow’s Southern General Hospital enables a quick response from ambulances and emergency services as well as 24-hour clinical cover and greater multidisciplinary input from the Institute of Neurological Sciences. It also enables access to the Institute’s state-of-the-art MRI, CT scanners and other hi-tech diagnostic facilities.

Following a celebration event on Friday 12 April, the first patients moved in on Monday 15 April, taking the first steps towards having their lives transformed.
