Read Right Project

Read Right Project

Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire launched the Read Right project in 2017. The project provides an opportunity for local services to work with a selected pool of Healthwatch volunteers to read publications and literature to gather feedback as to how they can be made more public & patient friendly.


Healthwatch Read Right volunteers will look specifically at the following:


  • Is the document well presented?
  • Is the language clear and simple?
  • Simple translation of complex information
  • Does the user feel more informed after reading the literature?

Healthwatch will then pull together the responses from our pool of volunteers and produce a response which may include some simple recommendations based on our volunteer feedback.
