Expert advice for people living with IBD

People living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) will be given the chance to find out more about the foods and medication which could help their condition during an event at Colchester Hospital.

During the meeting, specialists from East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT), which runs Colchester Hospital, will give three presentations on IBD. They will look at medications, the impact which different foods can have IBD and the research which is currently taking place locally into the condition.

The meeting has been organised by the Colchester IBD Centre, which is run by ESNEFT, and the north Essex branch of Crohn’s and Colitis UK. It is open to anyone with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis and will give them the chance to meet others with IBD, ask questions and find out more about local support.

It takes place on Saturday 17 June between 10am and 12.30pm in training room south at Colchester Hospital. Those attending will be able to park for free and will be given information about how to do so during the morning.
