Catch up on our recent Facebook live

We recently held a Facebook live talking about vaccines, treatments for COVID-19, and research updates, as well as what to do if you’re unwell over Christmas.

Ruth Wakeman, Director of Services, Advocacy & Evidence at Crohn's & Colitis UK, chaired the panel. She was joined by gastroenterologists Prof Charlie Lees, Dr Nick Kennedy, Dr Nick Powell and Dr Tariq Ahmad, and IBD nurse specialist, Kerry Robinson.

If you missed the Facebook live, you can catch up on the video on our YouTube channel.

We’ve recently updated our coronavirus pages, where you can find information about vaccines, treatments, and information to help if you are concerned about how coronavirus may impact your work and finances.

We know coping with news and updates about coronavirus can be tough, but we're here for you. If you're feeling unwell over Christmas, our information below might be helpful:

  • Take a look at our wellbeing resources.
  • Read our guide on what to do if you think you're having a flare.
  • Speak to our Helpline (you can see our Christmas opening hours below).
