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.

The Deputy First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon MSP marked the opening of Quarriers’ £6.4 million world-class epilepsy centre in Glasgow.

Ms Sturgeon was joined by Kelsey Durham, 20, who was diagnosed by Quarriers four years ago as having three strains of epilepsy. She has gone on to raise thousands for the charity’s epilepsy services including for a video monitoring system installed in the former centre.
