Epilepsy in England: The local picture

The local pictureOur researchPledge for actionHave your sayWho does what

Good epilepsy health and care services are crucial to people with epilepsy.

Research by Epilepsy Action has found that epilepsy is not considered a priority by the organisations making local decisions about healthcare in England. This is not good enough for the almost 500,000 people in England with epilepsy.

 Demand decision makers plan for epilepsy

Epilepsy Action surveyed the organisations across England that buy and plan healthcare services. We found that the majority have not made plans for people with epilepsy. We fear that without plans being put into place, healthcare services will not improve.

You can improve healthcare services in your local area. We have the tools you need to influence your local picture.

We’ll help you contact the organisations that plan for the needs of people with epilepsy in your area. You can encourage local decision makers to pledge for action on epilepsy.

How healthcare services are planned

The way in which local healthcare services in hospitals and the community are planned and provided has changed in recent years. If you’d like to read more about the organisations involved in making these decisions and who does what, read the background to healthcare services.
