Publication of Epilepsy12 2022 Combined Organisational and Clinical Audit Report
The Epilepsy12 project team are pleased to announce the publishing of the National Clinical Audit of Seizures and Epilepsies for Children and Young People (Epilepsy12) 2022 Combined organisational and clinical audits: Report for England and Wales Round 3 Cohort 3 (2019-21).
Firstly, the team would like to thank all the NHS Trusts and Health Boards in England and Wales for contributing towards the 2022 national combined report by submitting their clinical and organisational data. We recognise the significant time and effort dedicated by NHS administrators, clinical audit department staff, data analysts, doctors, nurses, EEG teams and others to complete the audit. The quality and volume of data submission is a testament to your hard work and has made this year’s analysis possible. We want to thank you for your dedication to improving paediatric epilepsy services, and particularly for your continued efforts during the challenging circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These most recent Epilepsy12 results provide insight into the epilepsy care of children and young people. The 2022 annual report describes key findings from the 2021 organisational and Round 3 Cohort 3 clinical audits, and national recommendations based on these data. You can also find updates on the quality improvement work of the Epilepsy12 Youth Advocates, Epilepsy Quality Improvement Programme (EQIP) and Organisation of Paediatric Epilepsy Networks in the UK (OPEN UK), as well as quality improvement case studies from participating NHS Trusts/ Health Boards.
The full analyses can be found in the appendices online and the Trust/Health Board’s designated Epilepsy12 lead should shortly receive a link to their unit level reports. We are also preparing updated clinic posters and patient and parent resources to compliment the annual report and will be in touch when these are available.
