On Wednesday 21 January, Quarriers hosted a special screening of Electricity at GMAC in Glasgow.
The film, starring Agyness Deyn, tells the story of a young woman with epilepsy and focuses on her experiences of living with the condition.
Following the screening, the audience put their questions to an expert panel featuring Hilary Mounfield OBE, Convenor of the Dementia Services Development Trust and an ambassador for the William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre; Professor Ian Bone, chair of clinical governance at the William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre; Joanne Hill, Clinical Nurse Specialist at The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre, and Elaine Blackley, who has lived with epilepsy for a number of years and attended the William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre for assessment, and is now Patient Participation Coordinator and a patient representative for the Epilepsy Team of the National Neurological Advisory Group.
The discussion offered informative insights into living with epilepsy. Thank you to the panel and to everyone who attended the screening.
