Where would you go if you had an epileptic fit?

This would be dependent on the patients’ medical history, severity of the seizure and presentation to the department. If an ambulance is in attendance, the paramedics would begin treatment and assess where the most appropriate treatment could be provided. If a patient presents at the UTC they will be assessed by the team. If, on assessment, they determine that the Emergency Department was required, they would arrange an emergency ambulance to transfer the patient safely for ongoing treatment. Otherwise, they would be treated at the UTC.
