Created by Sally Gomersall to improve the understanding of the epilepsies, Epilepsy Awareness Limited have built a reputation for training that is professional, reliable, up-to-date and authentic.
Sally has real life experience living with uncontrolled seizures. After more than 30 years of unpredictable epileptic seizures, she received the optimal NHS treatment for her type of epilepsy.
For over 20 years Sally has represented the views and perspectives of children, young people and adults with epilepsy and their families in developing NHS best practice clinical guidance for the diagnosis and management of the epilepsies.
Sally was a lay advocate in the multi-disciplinary expert epilepsy groups commissioned by NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) that published NHS guidance for the Diagnosis and Management of the Epilepsies in Adults, Children and Young People in 2004, 2012 and in April 2022.
NICE have invited Sally to be a Specialist Committee Member in the update of Epilepsy Quality Standards. Quality Standards set priority areas for quality improvement in health, public health and social care. The Epilepsy Quality Standards will highlight areas of variation in current practice and be published in May 2023.
“Through sharing my difficulties living with epilepsy comes understanding, and through understanding comes change. Improving the understanding of the epilepsies is critical to ensuring children, young people and adults with epilepsy can thrive and achieve their full potential; and our training courses is just one way we achieve this.”
