Present: 7 participants, 8 researchers, 4 apologies.
Three members of the Fourth Health Check (4HC) staff in Norwich were introduced to the Panel. The Panel members were also informed of the sad loss of two Panel members.
The Panel were informed that the changes they had suggested have been included in the actigraph results letter going out to participants following their 4HC appointment. Also, as suggested at the last meeting an information sheet explaining results to participants has also been compiled and a copy was provided to members for information.
