A research team of doctors at St Mark’s Hospital want to speak to people who have had a colectomy and ileoanal pouch due to their inflammatory bowel disease. They particularly want to speak to people who chose to have this surgery due to the finding of changes in the colon lining (called dysplasia). They want to learn how to better communicate and support patients through the process of deciding whether or not to have a colectomy and pouch for this condition. They can only do this if they hear directly from people who have experienced this and can tell them their stories and what worked or didn’t when speaking to their doctors. If you are interested in taking part then please do read the information via this weblink

or you can email for more information.
