Membership of the ILAE British Branch is open to all healthcare professionals in Great Britain with an interest in epilepsy. The ILAE British Branch is a chapter of the International League Against Epilepsy, the professional organisation representing all those interested in the field of epilepsy. The League aims to promote education and research and to improve the treatment of care of patients with epilepsy.


The ILAE British branch arranges a number of events throughout the year on issues relating to epilepsy. These include:

  • Our annual scientific meeting held in the autumn of each year
  • Teaching days/weekends
  • Joint meetings with other organisations to discuss related issues
  • Symposiums on epilepsy related issues
