Television presenter Carrie Grant joined forces with John Healey, MP for Wentworth & Dearne, to support Crohn’s and Colitis UK at the Parliamentary launch of its new patient resource.
‘My Crohn’s and Colitis Care’ is a patient guide to the top ten essentials of a good Inflammatory Bowel Disease health service. There are at least 300,000 people in the UK currently living with Crohn’s or Colitis, the two main forms of IBD.
John Healey MP said: “This is an important resource showing support to local people who are living with Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis and to raise awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Disease more generally. This guide will be invaluable in supporting patients to work in partnership with their healthcare services in order to get the best quality care.”
