A structured review process for epilepsy in primary care has been advocated as best practice. In Calderdale Primary Care Trust, a prescribing clinical pharmacist practitioner with a special interest in epilepsy (PwSI epilepsy) has been conducting annual reviews for epilepsy patients in GP practices. This service has improved patient care over and above the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) indicators for epilepsy and has been shown to be sustainable.
