Our IBD Patient Panel is led by, and made up of, our gastroenterology service users and supported by clinicians, including consultants, IBD Specialist Nurses and dieticians.
The panel was formed at Peterborough City Hospital in April 2012 and is in place to help clinicians shape the service and make improvements based on patient feedback.
Since its formation, the panel has staged three successful awareness events for patients to find out more about managing their symptoms of diseases such as Crohn's and Colitis.
The most recent event, called 'Take Control of IBD', was staged on Saturday 23 September 2017. This was attended by 100 patients and their relatives. The topics for discussion were chosen from the feedback by patients who attended a previous event.
The presentations from 'Take Control of IBD' are listed below:
Diet and IBD
Medications and Tests
