Collected Data for Gastric Band Insertion
Historically there has been very little information to help guide patients and referring GP’s regarding the quality of outcomes following surgery. What data is published tends to confine itself to death rates after major operations rather than complications, quality of life outcomes or patient experience.
We have been collecting information on all of the above and working on publishing as much information as we can to help patients in the choices.
All out patients are asked to complete a simple questionnaire and this is published unedited.
We will be publishing more information on complications and outcomes as we are able to process it.
