I. Minshall, A. Neligan September 3, 2017

On the strength of several audits which demonstrated variable standards of care for People with Epilepsy (PWE) in primary care, the Western Cheshire Primary Care Trust (PCT) agreed to fund the training and creation of a primary care-based Epilepsy clinic managed by a General Practitioner (GP) with Special Interest in epilepsy (GPwSIe) [1,2]. This clinic commenced in July 2005, with an Epilepsy Specialist Nurse allocated to the service for the initial first 12 months but not thereafter. Referrals were accepted from GPs, Practice Nurses, Consultant Neurologists and Paediatricians by direct letter or via the Choose and Book system (National Health Service (NHS) computerised appointment service) with appointments booked directly with the clinic.
