Gloucestershire Care Services have produced guidelines on the management of medical conditions. The aim of the guidelines is to ensure a standard for managing epilepsy in Schools, Early Years and Social Care settings.
Epilepsy is a condition that may require treatment/intervention at any time, to enable a young person/child to participate in activities of daily living which includes attending School/Early Years/Social Care settings which is essential to promote and enhance their education, health and well-being.
The guidelines give recommendations for raising awareness and management of children with epilepsy. The principles are evidenced based and underpinned by Government policies such as: Every Child Matters: Change for Children (2004), The Children’s Act (2004), and the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme (2009) in ensuring the principles of early intervention and health promotion.
