NPAG Launches Bariatric Workshop – An Introduction to Supporting Plus Sized Patients, Thursday 22 February 2018, Jurys Inn, East Midlands.

This interactive programme looks at the importance of planning carefully for the needs of plus sized people and to ensure equality of access for all.  We also ask whether early intervention can help reduce obesity.  We examine the human aspects – how does it feel to be patient in a “size-unfriendly world?”
