Working to improve health services

As part of our mission to improve the lives of people with Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and other kinds of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) we work to improve services together with patients, healthcare professionals and others including policy makers and government.

​Together we’re making the greatest difference and ensuring Crohn’s and Colitis are on the policy agenda.

We want everyone living with these conditions across the UK to have access to high quality, sustainable care and support. To achieve this, we work towards making the IBD Standards a reality, developing new models of care and involving people living with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis in everything we do. As the UK’s leading charity in this disease area, we are the voice of Crohn’s and Colitis patients.

Our RCGP IBD Spotlight Project, which aims to improve the detection and diagnosis of IBD in primary care has had huge success, including the release of the Crohn's and Colitis Flare Pathways in June 2019.

Services, treatments and outcomes for people living with Crohn’s and Colitis have seen significant improvements. Our work with patients and healthcare professionals is focusing on driving and embedding high quality care and treatment so that it becomes the ‘norm’ for patients throughout their journey.
