My Crohn’s and Colitis Care

More than 80 MPs and Peers attended the launch of our patient guide, My Crohn's and Colitis Care, in Parliament on Wednesday 4 November 2015.

Parliamentarians from across the political spectrum joined staff from Crohn’s & Colitis UK and volunteers from across the country - many living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) - in order to raise awareness of IBD and show their support. 

Each MP also met with television presenter and Crohn's & Colitis UK Ambassador Carrie Grant, who has been a member and supporter of the Charity for nearly 20 years since being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease.

My Crohn’s and Colitis Care, our patient guide outlines the top 10 essentials of a good IBD health service. The guide is designed to empower people with IBD to get the best from their local health service by working in partnership with their healthcare team.

I was pleased to be able to meet so many MPs and Ministers to discuss issues surrounding Crohn's and Colitis. As a patient myself, I often have moments of struggle when my Crohn's gets me down, so I know only too well how important it is to have a great IBD team around me. Others are not so fortunate which is terrible as everyone should be entitled to the best possible healthcare. I was thrilled to be able represent those living with IBD and talk to key decision makers about how we can work together to make a real difference to others living with the condition.
