New Service Opens For Stomach Patients

Wednesday December 5 2012

NEW clinic and support service for patients with inflammatory stomach conditions are being offered through Barnsley Hospital's pharmacy.

It will offer support and advice on side effects to patients taking immunomodulatory drugs for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and autoimmune hepatitis.

It will mean that patients will no longer have to make weekly appointments with a gastroenterology consultant at the hospital and can be monitored through blood tests taken at their local doctors.

Patients will be monitored by the clinic until their conditions have stabilised and their side effects are minimal. After that time they can be referred back to their local GP.

Thats brilliant! (If we get looked after)! Both my daughter and myself suffer with gastro problems and this is a good idea!

Could have done with being told about this a couple of weeks since as I have gastro problems and my surgery are doing the bloods but have no one to help with side effects. Will be great if done well
