Safety in your pocket

Life can get busy. Keeping track of your epilepsy or general well-being may not be easy. National guidelines encourage regular review of your epilepsy with your GP, but this may only be once in a year.

 

How do you check your risk the rest of the time? 

The award-winning app EpSMon can help you self-monitor in between your visits to doctors.
After answering a short assessment, EpSMon will produce an easy to read summary showing you:
• which risks are getting better
• which have worsened
• and which have stayed the same 
So you can show this summary to your GP on your next visit. It can also help you decide whether to seek help earlier than your next planned visit.
EpSMon is designed so that you can be aware of why and when a medical review of your epilepsy is important.
 
EpSMon cannot guarantee that you are never at risk, but it can help you self-monitor
and take positive action if needed.
 

Why should you check your epilepsy risks?

Living with epilepsy comes with certain risks, which can seem worrying but it's important that you keep an eye on any potential risks so you can take positive action. Your risks can change over time, so checking them regularly can help you know when actions should be taken to help you live well with epilepsy and reduce your risks. 

  • Our Epilepsy and Risk pages have key information to help understand what may be a risk for you and some steps to help reduce them
