The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre

The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre (WQSEC) opened on the 12th of April 2013. This state of the art facility with world-class diagnostic technology takes epilepsy services in the UK to a whole new level. The WQSEC is just the beginning of our ambition, not the end. The needs of people with epilepsy have driven our ambition to take a more strategic role:

  • Increasing understanding of the needs of patients with epilepsy through research.
  • Increasing aspirations of healthcare professionals for seizure management through training and awareness raising.
  • Training the next generation of healthcare professionals in epilepsy

Why do we need this service?

  • Epilepsy is a neurological condition which can have a huge impact on day-to-day life. Around 3,000 people in Scotland will be diagnosed with epilepsy this year alone.
  • Epilepsy can kill. More people died from epilepsy in 2018 than of Aids, Hepatitis, Meningitis, TB and Cystic Fibrosis – combined!
  • Over the lifetime of the building, 10,000 lives will be transformed and the number of deaths reduced.
  • The Centre combines Quarriers’ expertise with one of the world’s finest neurology teams and enable access to a wider range of diagnostic technology.
