Bariatric Surgery: Too Lean a Service? (2012)

This NCEPOD report highlights the process of care for patients aged over 16, who underwent bariatric surgery for weight loss. The report takes a critical look at areas where the care of patients might have been improved during the whole patient journey, from referral to follow up. Remediable factors have also been identified in the clinical and the organisational care of these patients.
