The notes of 24 individuals attending a clinic for people with learning disability and epilepsy were reviewed for all visits in the year preceding and following the implementation of medical audit standards for out patient review. There was no deterioration in any standard.

Medical audit can improve standards in epilepsy care, though Its influence on outcome is not known.
