For the assessment to your service, you will have a lay assessor as part of the assessment team.
Lay assessors represent the views of patients and will review documents that are usually sent to patients and look at the hospital from the patient’s perspective.
The service will need to post the following documents for the lay assessor to review before the visit:
- Patient information pack for patients undergoing a colonoscopy, includes letters and patient information about the procedure/service
- Any bowel prep instructions or other information given to patients at their outpatient appointment
- Directions to the hospital and unit
- Any other special instructions
You will need to ensure that any documentation sent does not include any patient identifiable information.
Please post the patient information to the following address once your requested assessment dates have been confirmed.
