All children, young people and adults with epilepsy should have access via their specialist to a tertiary service when circumstances require. The NICE guideline states that if seizures are not controlled and/or there is diagnostic uncertainty or treatment failure, children, young people and adults should be referred to tertiary services soon for further assessment.</p><p> </p><p>The NICE guidance also makes clear that a named clinician should assume responsibility for the ongoing management of the young person with epilepsy during adolescence to ensure smooth transition of care to adult services. Whilst the Department does not directly assess compliance with NICE guidance, we expect commissioners to take it, and other examples of evidence based best practice, into account when planning and delivering services for local populations.
