A Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Nurse Specialist, Isobel is also part of the Crohn's & Colitis UK staff team.
As a nurse consultant in gastroenterology, Isobel also works with a team of IBD nurse specialists at the Royal Free Hospital in north London.
I’ve worked alongside Crohns and Colitis UK for many years – going along to my local network meetings – giving advice locally and nationally – helping the charity to develop the first national standards for IBD care – a whole range of contacts
Isobel has been an integral part of our ‘More IBD Nurses – Better Care’ campaign, and has been seconded from her NHS job to lead the project.
As part of our ambition to see every patient have access to an IBD Nurse, Isobel has helped launch our IBD Nurse Map, where patients can find contact details for their nurse.
We know that IBD nurse specialists are vital for people living with IBD and really improve their experience. We want everyone to have contact with one.
Isobel works with our members, nurses from all corners of the UK, hospitals and IBD teams, the Royal College of Nursing and all sorts of NHS leaders to make sure our aim or improving care for people with Crohn's and Colitis is met.
