That this House notes the tragic loss of life caused by Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), estimated at around 500 deaths in the UK each year; recognises that young people first taking responsibility for their own medication are particularly vulnerable to SUDEP; further notes the findings of a recent fatal accident inquiry held in Dundee Sheriff Court that the deaths of two young women aged 19 and 15 yearsmay have been avoided had the women and their parents received sufficient information about the risk of SUDEP on first diagnosis; and calls on the Department of Health to do everything in its power to raise awareness of the risks of SUDEP, with particular emphasis on teenagers and young people moving towards independence, to ensure those affected by epilepsy, and where relevant their families, are adequately informed of how best to reduce the risks associated with the condition.
