She has been working as a Tertiary level Epilepsy Nurse Specialist within the Complex Epilepsy Team at Evelina London Children’s Hospital since the inception of the post in 2003. She also runs ELCH’s Vagal Nerve Stimulator service at ELCH, in addition to supporting all children seen by the Complex Epilepsy Team.
Amanda works closely with fellow DSUK Medical Advisory Board member, Dr Elaine Hughes, also based at ELCH - together they set up Dravet Syndrome clinics to provide regular specialist support for families. These continue to run on a monthly basis.
