Help us to make Crohn's and Colitis visible today.
Let’s not go back to normal as we come out of the pandemic. For too many people, normal is having Crohn’s or Colitis overwhelm so many aspects of their life that they’re just getting by. Let's create a better society for adults and children with Crohn's and Colitis to live and thrive, not just survive. Will you help us?
The first step is better care for everyone affected by Crohn's or Colitis. Our new report shows that people are waiting too long for a diagnosis, need more support to live well with their condition and faster access to specialist treatment and care.
Help us to get Crohn's and Colitis recognised by the NHS as a priority so that this can change.
Take action - it takes two simple steps to email your local political representative asking them to support our campaign. Your local representative has the power to get this issue heard. They can influence changes so that everyone with Crohn's and Colitis receives better care. But we need your help to show them that Crohn's and Colitis are serious conditions that must be taken seriously.
Will you send your letter to help the half a million adults and children living with the conditions across the UK?
We're asking your politician to:
- Work with Crohn's & Colitis UK to campaign for better care for people with Crohn's and Colitis so that the conditions are recognised as an NHS priority with a clear government strategy.
- Write to your local Health Trust or Board (this will be tailored depending where you live) to ask them what they are doing to act on local reports to improve the care they deliver.
- Raise this issue in the House of Commons, Scottish Parliament, Senedd (Welsh Parliament) or the Northern Ireland Assembly so it can be addressed.
These actions will get Crohn's and Colitis on the agenda in front of the right people, which gives us the best chance to achieve better care for everyone.
