Assessment

The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre provides the only residential assessment and treatment centre in Scotland for adults with epilepsy. Our 12 bedded in-patient facility provides flexible, patient-centred residential assessment for adults 16 years and over.

We offer a multi-disciplinary in-depth assessment to people with the most complex diagnostic and treatment needs. People can be referred to The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre to clarify diagnosis, provide individual advice and support as well as make changes to your treatment in a safe environment.
