Epilepsy to be fully coordinated

1st March 2013

New quality standards published by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence have said epilepsy care must be fully coordinated right across the whole care pathway.

The two quality standards – for adults and for children and young people – also call for specialist nurses to be closely involved in care and say that anyone with suspected seizures must, within two weeks of presentation, be seen by a specialist in epilepsy diagnosis and management. The guidance also wants all people being investigated for suspected epilepsy to have the tests within four weeks of them being requested.
