Epilepsy12 audit

We work to improve the quality of care for children and young people with seizures and epilepsies in England and Wales.

NHS national data opt-out – Epilepsy12 exemption (England only)

The NHS national data opt-out does not apply to Epilepsy12, as the audit has been granted an exemption. For more information, please visit our patient and parent guide to the Epilepsy12 audit and our methodology and data submission pages.

Published in July 2022, the most recent results from Epilepsy12 provide insight into epilepsy care of children and young people. The report presents key findings, quality improvement and national recommendations, with full analyses and regional or local results in appendices and detailed data tables.

An updated version of this report has been published in November 2022.

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.
