We would ask that prior to proceeding further in your search for information about Encephalitis the Illness you take a few moments to read and consider the comments below.
In some instances where people are affected by Encephalitis the long-term prognosis can be very good, with many people coming through the illness with little or no difficulties. However because there are occasions where more severe problems can occur, we have had to make our information as broad and far-reaching as possible. Therefore the details provided in the forthcoming web pages are fairly extensive. Taking this into account we would ask that anyone seeking information consider the following factors.
The difficulties stated in the information are not reflective of every situation where Encephalitis is involved and that some of the information stated may not be relevant to your situation.
Taking into account the emotional strain that a diagnosis of Encephalitis may bring coupled with the amount of information available through our website consideration may be required into gauging how much information is accessed at any one time.
We aim to make our information as accessible as possible and have a variety of mediums in which this information can be accessed. All pages on the website can be translated into other languages, using the Google Translate button, the text size can be altered, and we can arrange for hardcopies and audio translations if necessary. If you need any assistance in accessing our information please contact the office on 01653 699599 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
