Young Epilepsy has a fully-fledged EEG Department staffed by experienced senior Clinical Neurophysiologists working under Consultant supervision.
We perform EEGs for NHS and non-NHS organisations and reports are sent out to treating Consultants expeditiously.

- Routine (awake) EEG
- Urgent EEG
- Sleep EEG
- Ambulatory EEG
- Video Telemetry
