The more appropriate treatment of suspected seizure has the potential to reduce unscheduled admissions in this patient group. Pilot work with collaborators (including YAS) has demonstrated the feasibility of identifying a group of patients with seizure who may benefit from intervention to reduce admissions. The formation of a PPI group has also been established. The development of a national programme grant application to NIHR on unscheduled care of patients with seizure is currently in progress.
