Departments: Epilepsy

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people with epilepsy are employed by her Department; and if she will make a statement. (139111)

The Department holds records of those staff who have declared a disability. However, this is not broken down by reason, therefore epilepsy cannot be separately identified. When staff are absent from work due to an epileptic episode, this is recorded on the Department’s sickness absence database as a neurological condition and not specific to epilepsy.
