Update to IBD Helpline capability

 

Dear Patient,

We are experiencing demand for our assistance that outweighs our resources. We need to prioritise our resources into patient issues which are urgent and disease threatening. Therefore, there are some issues we will not be able to respond to within our resource limitations so that we can prioritise advice line care to those who need it most. 

There may be delays in our response time. If you require urgent assistance, or if your enquiry does not fall into the category below, you may need to consult your GP or present to the emergency department. 

 

This email helpline is to assist with: 

  • Symptoms suggestive of flare of IBD

  • Issues related to your biological or immune suppressant medication

 

Please be aware of the following:

 

Thank you for your understanding, as we try to deliver the best service we can to our patients with IBD within our resources

It is the best point of contact for the IBD team.
