"I felt I was left adrift"

I have epilepsy. I had a good experience at Hairmyres hospital but I was disappointed that I could only see the neurologist once a year for about 20 mins. I felt I was left adrift as there was very little information about epilepsy from my GP and hospital. It took me some months to find a self-help group (Lanarkshire Epilepsy Support Group) and I find going to the group beneficial as I can speak to people with the same condition. I feel that if the GP surgeries and hospitals had this information it could help others.
