90% of people with Epilepsy discriminated against

Almost 90 per cent of people with Epilepsy have faced discrimination because of their condition.

That's according to new research that also shows that the majority of adults in the UK don't know what the condition is or what causes it.

This week is National Epilepsy Week and raising awareness of the condition is Carol Long from Young Epilepsy and Olivia Salvati who suffers from the condition.
