We would ask that prior to proceeding further in your search for information about Encephalitis 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.

The information provided on the website is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her physician.

The Encephalitis Society is a member of the Information Standard Scheme. We were delighted to be accredited in February 2011, therefore we are adding the Information Standard logo to all our health and social care information we produce. The Encephalitis Society shall hold responsibility for the accuracy of the information they publish and neither the Scheme Operator nor the Scheme Owner shall have any responsibility whatsoever for costs, losses or direct or indirect damages or costs arising from inaccuracy of information or omissions in information published on the website on behalf of The Encephalitis Society.

Should any of the information raise issues or give you reason for concern we would ask that you contact the office via our support line 01653 699599 or alternatively we can be contacted by email on support@encephalitis.info

Thank you,

The Encephalitis Society
