Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
How does this service work?
If your doctor has already seen you and sent you for the appropriate blood tests , they may then ask you to download and complete the referral form (download below) in order to be referred to the IBS service.
As part of completing the referral form you will also be asked to complete a food and symptom diary (download below).
Patients can self-refer to this service, however there are a number of tests that must be completed (and confirmed as normal) before you referral will be accepted; a visit to your GP surgery will be required and the appropriate tests must be undertaken before sending your details.
Details on how to submit the referral are at the top of the relevant form.
Patients will be given information on diet and lifestyle changes that they can make in order to manage their condition. Patients who do not respond to diet and lifestyle changes can be further referred to gastroenterology (should it be necessary).
