The 2019 Clinical Audit on Paediatric Epilepsy recommended that integrated services should be designed around paediatric epilepsy patients, so their physical and mental health needs are diagnosed and treated together in a holistic approach. NHS England and NHS Improvement are supporting the Organisation of Paediatric Epilepsy Networks and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health in the implementation of these recommendations.
