Advice and guidance

There are different types of advice that we can offer depending on the nature of your condition. Some of our services offer helplines that you can call to speak to a nurse or a pharmacist. One example is the Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) helpline run by our clinical nurse specialist team in Gastroenterology.

We also offer this option to our GP colleagues. Your GP may contact your hospital doctor to request some advice about your medication or a change in symptoms that you have experienced. Your hospital doctor will either telephone or write back to your GP with some information about how to manage your condition.
