EEG Services

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.

At Young Epilepsy we are able to perform the following investigations:

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

Epilepsy is essentially a clinical diagnosis. An EEG is not used to exclude or confirm that diagnosis, but to classify the person’s seizures and in making a syndromic diagnosis. It could also give information that may help with further investigations, treatment and prognosis.
