People are waiting too long for a diagnosis of Crohn's or Colitis. Find out more about the work we are doing to change this.

We are proud to chair IBD UK, a partnership of 17 patient and professional organisations, that have come together with people living with Crohn’s and Colitis to develop the IBD Standards and address the large variations in care across the UK.
The IBD UK report Crohn’s and Colitis Care in the UK: The Hidden Cost and a Vision for Change looked at the experiences of over 10,000 people with Crohn’s and Colitis and 72% of IBD services across the UK and revealed the areas in which care needs to be improved.
We know it can be difficult to live with, or support someone living with these conditions. But you’re not alone. We provide up-to-date, evidence-based information and can support you to live well with Crohn’s or Colitis.
Our helpline team can help by:
Providing information about Crohn’s and Colitis.
Listening and talking through your situation.
Helping you to find support from others in the Crohn’s and Colitis community.
Signposting you to specialist organisations.
Please be aware we’re not medically or legally trained. We cannot provide detailed financial or benefits advice or specialist emotional support.
Please contact us via telephone, email or LiveChat - 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (except English bank holidays).
If you need specific medical advice about your condition, your GP or IBD team will be best placed to help.
