Paediatric epilepsy service

In order to deliver the best possible patient care during the Coronavirus outbreak, we will be reorganising aspects of children's services that are provided and delivered by CCS NHS Trust. Please see the details on our public website (https://www.cambscommunityservices.nhs.uk/luton/childrens/luton-children's-how-coronavirus-is-affecting-our-services) for which services will be continuing, what changes will be made, and what will be suspended until further notice. Please also check back to this page in future for further updates.

The paediatric epilepsy nursing (PEN) service supports effective diagnosis and care of children/young people with a diagnosis of epilepsy, avoiding unnecessary hospital admissions/attendances, from birth to transition to adult services.  The paediatric epilepsy nursing service is provided to children/young people who have an NHS Luton GP.

Referrals are accepted from community/hospital paediatricians, health professionals, education, social services staff. Re-referrals are accepted directly from parents/carers/young people who have previously accessed the service. 

Please find out more by visiting our website.
