Occasionally we ask for feedback on proposed documentation from our patients and the public. We want to make sure that the information we are sending out is easy to understand, sends out all the right messages and is suitable for everyone it might affect. Feedback provided from patients and the public is compiled into a report with recommendations for how the document could be improved.
Below you will find eight documents that will be used to inform patients about diabetes and the effect it can have on people’s feet. There are four different documents in two sets (4 x standard and 4 x easy read versions) of the same information.
We were looking for feedback on the documents that will help it to be as clear and as easy to understand as possible for patients who might receive it. We asked people to consider the following in giving their feedback:
- The language used (is it easy to understand?)
- If there is any information missing?
- Is it suitable for other people in our community?
