epilepsy commissioning toolkit

Epilepsy Society has partnered with Epilepsy Action to design the new 'Epilepsy Commissioning Toolkit' to help commissioners provide better health services for people with epilepsy.

The toolkit provides commissioners with all the information they need to ensure high quality services for the 500,000 people living with epilepsy in England.

The toolkit has nine sections which give practical examples based on experience. It provides well-known tools and information plus new interactive tools. Commissioners will be able to calculate local populations of people living with epilepsy, create business cases and access an epilepsy specialist nurse impact tool to track outcomes.

We have worked with nine Clinical Commissioning Groups, Healthcare professionals and people living with epilepsy to provide a tool to help improve services for people with epilepsy. The toolkit has gained endorsement from the Royal College Of General Practitioners and the Association of British Neurologists and is also being championed by NHS England National Clinical Director for Adult Neurological Conditions, Dr David Bateman.
