Dear Portsmouth City Council,

I am mindful that there were 1,367 over 18s registered in Portsmouth in 2013/14. What is your latest estimate on the number of children and adults living in Portsmouth diagnosed or suspected to have epilepsy or related conditions?

What information and advice has been given to ensure the health and social care needs of people with epilepsy and parents of children with epileptic conditions are taken into account for those in the council's care?

Not under FOI
What is your assessment of the priority of need for diagnostic and screening services for epileptic conditions?

How many people are registered with a disability which is an epileptic condition and currently working with Portsmouth City Council

Yours faithfully,

sameen farouk
