Information for People With Epilepsy

Will having epilepsy affect my employment prospects?

In most cases, it should not. However, the impact of epilepsy on people's lives varies a great deal and decisions on employment should be based on each individual's circumstances.

Most people with epilepsy are perfectly able to work at whatever they choose to do. Others do not have any particular difficulties when placed in the right job, but each person's difficulties and limitations need to be individually assessed.

Anyone with a history of epilepsy, however, will not be able to work in a job that will require them to drive a lorry, bus, train, etc.
