Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) affects at least 1 in 210 of the UK population and the prevalence is rising. Many patients report a delay in getting a diagnosis, the longer a diagnosis takes to make, the more likely a patient is to require aggressive medical therapy or even surgery.

Managing flares, supporting patients to stay well and monitoring long-term risks are all vital aspects of care.
