IBS Patient Support Programme

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a condition affecting the digestive system. It can cause unpleasant episodes of diarrhoea and constipation, or both, as well as bloating and abdominal pain or cramps. The main cause of IBS is unknown but eating certain foods and stress are known to exacerbate symptoms that can last for a day or so to several weeks or even months. The severity of symptoms varies from person to person; in some cases, these can have a significant impact on quality of life.

Our talkhealth IBS Patient Support Programme (PSPs) are suitable for all those who are living with IBS, whether you have been newly diagnosed or you have been living with the condition for some time, and the carers of someone who has IBS.

talkhealth Patient Support Programmes (PSPs) offer you the chance to receive free online information, support and advice that it is specific to your condition. While on the programme you will receive an email once a week which will provide you with a link to new downloadable information such as hints and tips, lifestyle advice and up to date information from experts. The information we have created for this programme has been designed to enable you to better manage your condition and symptoms more effectively as well as improving your quality of life:

PSPs will last for around 3 to 6 months, and you are free to join and unsubscribe from the programme at any time.
