Her Majesty the Queen We are extremely saddened at the death of Her Majesty The Queen. The thoughts of our team are with her family and the many millions of people around the world who loved her and held her in such high esteem. As this is a period of mourning for the UK and the Commonwealth and to pay our respects, we will be closing our offices on Monday, 19th September, for Her Majesty's funeral. We have also made the decision to postpone two face-to-face member meetings in London and the Republic of Ireland until a later date. Our other services will not be affected during this period. If you have been affected by encephalitis and the Queen's passing and would like someone to speak to, please contact our support team by email or by calling +44(0)1653 699599. With best wishes, The Encephalitis Society team.
