HC Deb 03 November 1992 vol 213 cc180-1W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if training in the management of epilepsy is included in social work training at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Mrs. Yeo

In order to qualify for the diploma in social work, students are required to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of health and disability issues. There is no specific requirement that they be trained in the management of epilepsy. The Central Council for Education and Training in Social Work has further work in hand to identify the knowledge and skills required of social workers at post-qualifying level.
