New Crohn’s and Colitis Companion website goes live!

Launched today, the Crohn’s and Colitis Companion is a new website developed by Crohn's and Colitis UK. 

The website streamlines relevant and helpful information about Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and provides links to reliable and trustworthy sources.

There is a wealth of information online about Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis- sometimes a vast quantity for the user to tackle and with discrepancies around accuracy.

The Crohn’s and Colitis Companion assists the user in navigating a large variety of information by allowing them to view common topics, such as managing symptoms and how to live with IBD long term.

Content has been organised with the help of patients and healthcare professionals and signposts to other websites, charities and IBD bloggers.

Being diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease is daunting and knowing where to find the right information can be overwhelming. Therefore we wanted to design a mobile site that would simplify the many resources into one easy to navigate place. It is not only for people recently diagnosed with IBD but can support people managing their condition long-term. The 'Companion' is evolving and we want people to review and suggest new content through the easy feedback function found on each page.
