Epilepsy Action is the only epilepsy charity with PIF TICK accreditation for its information

The PIF TICK logoEpilepsy Action has been awarded PIF TICK accreditation for a further year.

The certification recognises that the health information on Epilepsy Action’s website is high-quality, evidence-based, understandable, jargon-free and up-to-date.

The website first achieved the accreditation in 2021, just one year after the scheme was established.

Epilepsy Action is the only epilepsy charity to have the accreditation for its information.

Epilepsy Action’s health information lead Hannah Beckitt said the certification is important because it shows healthcare professionals can be confident when signposting their patients to Epilepsy Action.

She said: “The PIF TICK process has been invaluable in making Epilepsy Action what it is: a trusted source of information covering all aspects of someone’s life that epilepsy can affect.

“It can be hard to find reliable information on the internet, but the little green PIF TICK ensures healthcare professionals and people with epilepsy know they can rely on us.

“This is very much a collaborative effort. Without the help and feedback from people with lived experience and experts, we would not be able to able to reach the standards outlined by PIF.”
