The ‘Better value, better care’ booklet looks at why epilepsy care services should be commissioned and what effective commissioning involves. Tools such as a service specification checklist, audit checklist and case studies of good practice are also provided.
Guide to writing a business case for an epilepsy specialist nurse service
This guide aims to help NHS managers write a business case to develop an epilepsy specialist nurse (ESN) service.
Epilepsy Action’s report ‘Best care: The value of epilepsy specialist nurses’ [PDF] states that ESNs undertake a wide range of valuable, mainly patient-related activities in various settings. In the absence of ESNs this work would either fall to consultants or simply be overlooked.
