This article presents a study to audit the treatment pathway and quality of life (QOL) for patients who have been discharged to the community with a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). For many patients little is known of the effect of a PEG on QOL. Education and training in hospital and support within the community were satisfactory. There needs to be more explanation of the risks of PEG insertion and speedier resolution of some problems, but PEG insertion did not worsen QOL for most patients.
