Iain McKenzie MP praised Inverclyde-based charity Quarriers for leading the way in epilepsy services following a visit to the world class William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre in Govan. He visited the cnetre in May and was given a tour by Quarriers Chief Executive Paul Moore and Quarriers Head of Epilepsy Gerard Gahagan.
Iain McKenzie MP said “I was delighted to visit the new state of the art Centre in Govan.
"This is an incredibly impressive facility which offers world-leading technology for the assessment and diagnosis of epilepsy.
"When William Quarrier opened his Colony of Mercy in Inverclyde in 1906, it was the first ever initiative to support those who suffered from epilepsy in Scotland. Today, the new Centre, which carries his name, is as equally innovative. The new Centre is equipped with the most advanced diagnostic technology, making it comparable with the very best services in the world. It is a facility which will transform the lives of those who suffer from epilepsy, offering them a sanctuary of first class excellence and specialist care.
"Sadly, William Quarrier did not live to see his first epilepsy centre open in Quarriers Village; however his legacy stands proud today. For the last century, his vision has helped thousands of families across Scotland and in this new Centre that vision will live on.”
