Public Health England has published Epidemiological assessment on proposed change to England’s children’s epilepsy surgery service specification.
This assessment provides independent epidemiological evidence on how the children’s epilepsy surgery service specification (CESS) may be affected if the proposed changes to the current service specification are implemented.
The proposed changes are:
- to expand the list of operations to be undertaken at designated CESS centres
- change the current service specification so that children of all ages needing epilepsy surgery have their operations at one of the four designated CESS centres.
