New Children’s ESN in Scotland health board

A new children’s epilepsy specialist nurse (ESN) has been appointed by the NHS Dumfries and Galloway health board. For years’ this was reportedly the only mainland health board without a specialist paediatric ESN in Scotland.
Sarah Gemmel has taken the new role of epilepsy and complex needs lead at the health board. The charity Epilepsy Scotland and families of children with epilepsy have campaigned for this appointment.
Sarah Gemmel said I am excited to take on this new role that will provide the essential service for offering practical and emotional support to children and families in Dumfries and Galloway.
