§ Mr. John Patten
The report of the working group on services for people with epilepsy was made to the Department of Health and Social Security, the Department of Education and Science and the Welsh Office. Following consultation with the standing medical advisory committee and the standing nursing and midwifery advisory committee, it is hoped to issue the report shortly to health authorities and local authority social services departments. It is not the intention that the report should be treated as a blueprint for the provision of services by all authorities. The scope for adoption of particular recommendations in different areas will depend on the pattern of existing services, availability of resources and local priorities.
