Charity-run helpline provides valuable support for those with IBS

Charity-run helpline provides valuable support for those with IBS
Viewpoints

Reaching out to the 12 million people in the UK who are living with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a major challenge for The IBS Network. Set up over 26 years ago, the charity provides information, advice and support for people with IBS and
those who care for them, working alongside healthcare professionals to facilitate self-management. This is achieved via a small core office team, supported by a wider voluntary advisory board of medical and healthcare professionals who are
specialists in IBS.
