Bariatric Pathway – Patient Information Forms, Reader Group

Lead: Leeds West

Area: Leeds North, Leeds South & East, Leeds West

Period: 17th Mar 2017 - 26th Mar 2017

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.

If you are interested in being more directly involved with the Reader Group you sign up to do so here.

Below you will find three proposed information sheets from the Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust (LTHT). The information is guidance on bariatric pathways. They are patient information sheets that clinicians will be handing out. We are asking for anyone who is interested to look over the patient information and provide comments. We are only looking for feedback on the patient information section on the first page. The second page is clinical guidance and has already been approved.

We are looking for any feedback on the letter that will help it to be as clear and as easy to understand as possible for patients who might receive it. If you are interested in giving some feedback we ask that you consider the following:

  • The language used (is it easy to understand?)
  • If there is any information missing?
  • Is it suitable for other people in our community?

Once you have decided on your feedback, you can send it directly to Adam Stewart by clicking here.

Printed versions are available on request. Email Adam and he will send you a copy out.
