The 12-bed centre was

of Neurological Sciences at Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (formerly the Southern General). The majority of Scotland’s trainee neurologists have access to the Centre as a learning facility while it also offers training for medical trainees, doctors, nurses and conducts research into epilepsy. As one of Europe’s leading


epilepsy services Ms Robison was given an insight into the Centre’s operations including its unique video monitoring technology which allows specialists to determine more efficiently if a patient has the condition.
