Coronavirus Update

Many of you have been contacting us over the past few weeks about the coronavirus outbreak expressing understandable concerns about its effects on your health, work, finances and general well-being. 

It has also meant we have had to postpone the Red Lion Group’s Annual Information Day and AGM, which was due to take place on 25 April, in compliance with government restrictions.  We recognize the value of the Information Day to our members and are constantly reviewing the possibilities of a re-arranged event later in the year. We will keep you posted on this.

Covid-19 has posed many questions and concerns for us all about both the present and the future. In particular the “at risk” status of pouchees and potential pouchees who are on various medications.  

There is very clear and concise advice on this topic on the websites of the Ileostomy and Internal Pouch Association (IA) ( Click here ) and Crohn’s and Colitis UK ( Click here ) and we suggest you refer to these in the first instance

If you still have issues or concerns then please don’t hesitate to contact us at

The RLG Committee
