Lay assessors represent the views of patients and review documents that are usually sent to patients and look at the hospital from the patient’s perspective.
Your assessment administrator will request that you send a patient information pack for the lay assessor to review before the assessment. This should include anything you would normally send a patient attending for a colonoscopy. This may include:
- Letters and patient information about the procedure/service
- Any bowel prep instructions or other information given to patients at their outpatient appointment (please do not send bowel prep though)
- 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.

If you assessment adminstrator has not yet been assigned, please send the pack to Eva Lynch.
