World IBD Day
Got something to say? Say it on 19 May... World IBD Day!
That’s why we asked you to make some noise on World IBD Day (Thursday 19 May), to help raise awareness of the 300,000 people in the UK, as well as millions more around the world, who are living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
We also launched our new campaign 'More IBD Nurses - Better Care' highlighting the importance of Specialist IBD Nurses who make such a big difference to patients’ lives.
Across the UK, at least 100,000 people with Crohn’s and Colitis don't have access to a Specialist IBD Nurse and 63% of IBD services in the UK don't have enough Specialist Nurses to meet the needs of everyone affected.
They are a lifeline, providing vital information and support in the most appropriate way for each patient. The care they deliver is invaluable and they help hundreds of thousands of people cope with this devastating disease, which is why we need to shout loudly about the importance of Specialist IBD Nurses to ensure that more patients have access to them.
By joining our 'More IBD Nurses - Better Care' campaign, you'll be lending your voice to call for better access to Specialist IBD Nurses, meaning better care across the UK.
