What are epilepsy services like in my area? Where can people with epilepsy access an epilepsy specialist nurse? How does the quality of services affect seizure freedom rates, or the level of risk posed by SUDEP?
Epilepsy Action has collated a series of maps and data tables to help us understand more about epilepsy healthcare services across the UK. The maps allow you to look at services by health board and trust, and at regional and national level. They enable health professionals to see how services in different areas compare to others nationally – and how their service compares to others.
We hope this data will be useful to health professionals, commissioners and others interested in providing high quality health services for people with epilepsy. Epilepsy Action will use the data to pinpoint where epilepsy health services need to improve – and push for these improvements to be made. The data also allows us to identify any correlations between levels of service provision and levels of seizure control.
