Published in July 2023, the most recent results from Epilepsy12 provide insight into epilepsy care of children and young people.

The report presents key findings, national recommendations, and quality improvement. You can also find regional or local results in the extended analyses and detailed data tables.

Frequent reporting dashboard

This is a new interactive tool to share Epilepsy12 performance indicator data in the public domain at more frequent intervals.

Established in 2009, Epilepsy12 has the continued aim of helping epilepsy services, and those who commission health services, to measure and improve the quality of care for children and young people with seizures and epilepsies.
Our current round has two main data processing and reporting components: the organisational audit and the clinical audit. We provide full detail, and the link to submit data.
We've brought together the Epilepsy12 annual reports from earlier rounds, plus links to our patient and parent guide, clinic posters, presentations from our conferences and more.
