Repro Free: 12/05/2015 Pictured at the launch of the ‘Gut Decisions – Leading change to improve the lives of people with Crohn’s and colitis’ report at Buswells Hotel was Ged Nash TD, the Minister for Business and Employment, with sufferers David Nolan from Castleknock (left) and Edel Prizeman from Kildare. The report is the first ever national assessment of the difficulties faced by the estimated 20,000 Irish people living with Crohn’s and colitis.
Today’s report, which was compiled with the support of biopharmaceutical company AbbVie, was developed by a steering group comprising patients with Crohn’s and Colitis and healthcare professionals and combines two separate surveys to fully capture both the gaps in available services and the socio-economic impact of the conditions on individual patients.
