Once again our Vifor Pharma UK team dressed in purple to support the World IBD Day in the UK and raise awareness for Crohn’s and Colitis Disease. (www.crohnsandcolitis.org.uk)
Supporters help to improve the lives of the 300,000 people in the UK, as well as millions more around the world, who are living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
This year, we want to tell everyone about the importance of Specialist IBD Nurses who make such a big difference to patients’ lives.
All IBD patients, and their loved ones, should have access to a Specialist Nurse who understands their needs and can provide the right kind of support when they most need it. Sadly though, not all patients can get help from a Specialist IBD Nurse and six out of ten IBD services across the UK don’t have enough Specialist Nurses to give the best quality care that all patients deserve. This isn’t good enough.
World IBD Day is our chance to change this. Together we are stronger so let’s join forces, make some noise and call for all patients to have access to a Specialist IBD Nurse!
