Creating a co-produced web based hub of tools and information to commission epilepsy services: voluntary sector and CCG partnership
We will take you through our experience of the collaborative creation of the online Epilepsy Commissioning Toolkit.
You will hear about how we worked with multiple stakeholders to gather information, examples of good practice, research and data. We will reflect on how to present this complex information on the web for national access. We will also look at the importance of collecting and learning from feedback.
You will find out how a patient group has used and informed the Toolkit, and share examples of how patients have been involved when producing and reviewing resources.
Finally we will discuss how this can be used to inform your future work.
We look forward to meeting you. Peri and Juliet

Juliet and Peri have been working together to develop the ‘Epilepsy Commissioning Toolkit’, which is a web-based hub of information, advice and evidence needed to improve or commission epilepsy services. Informing the decision making process of service improvements for a Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) population of people living with epilepsy.
There are many forms of information, tools and data which exist for epilepsy, however these can be a challenge to find and require some knowledge of what is available.
With that in mind the epilepsy voluntary sector, Epilepsy Action and Epilepsy Society, have worked with nine CCGs to create a process of commissioning steps. The sections will take commissioners and providers through the commissioning process. The findings and recommendations will be shared in other areas across the country.
