Welcome to the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) team at Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI). We provide a comprehensive range of general and specialist IBD clinical services to the population of Bradford and surrounding area for patients with a diagnosis of IBD. This involves inpatient hospital care and outpatient clinics at BRI delivered by consultants and specialist nurses.
The Inflammatory Bowel Disease team comprises of members from different specialist backgrounds who work together to deliver the best possible care for our patients.
All of the doctors within the team have a special interest in IBD. They will discuss your condition with you and decide along with you what would be the most appropriate way to investigate and treat your IBD.
You will be allocated a named consultant gastroenterologist who will have overall responsibility for your IBD care and will keep you up-to-date with your progress, but you will not necessarily see them at each appointment.
The IBD nurse specialists are senior nurses with specialist training in IBD. They provide a key role in assessing and monitoring patients on a range of drug therapies as well as providing expert advice and information on all aspects of inflammatory bowel disease. They are also the first point of contact via the inflammatory bowel disease advice line and email service.
You may be referred for assessment and treatment to other members of the IBD multidisciplinary team including surgeons and dietitians.
