The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre

The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre (SEC) is located close to Glasgow’s Southern General Hospital. It provides state of the art facilities with world-class diagnostic technology to the United Kingdom. The new centre opened on 12 April 2013. The new centre is just the beginning of Quarriers' 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.
