Epilepsy Action awarded ‘trusted information creator’ accreditation

12 Nov 2021

Epilepsy Action has gained a Patient Information Forum (PIF) TICK. It certifies the organisation as a ‘trusted information creator’.

This is the UK’s only quality mark for print and online health information. To gain the accreditation, Epilepsy Action underwent an assessment to show its information met 10 key criteria.

The PIF TICK means PIF was satisfied that Epilepsy Action’s information is evidence-based, understandable, jargon-free, up-to-date and produced to the best possible standard.

The PIF TICK was launched in May 2020. In June 2021, the organisation also launched a website to help people find trusted health information and spot false health information.

PIF TICK manager Dan Willis said: “We are thrilled to welcome Epilepsy Action to our ever-growing community of accredited PIF TICK members. Accurate, accessible, evidence-based information is key to increasing patient empowerment and improving health outcomes.”

Previously, Epilepsy Action’s advice and information had received the Information Standard logo from a scheme run by NHS England, until the scheme ended in 2019.
