Update on the COVID-19 UK IBD Tool for patients

Apr 3, 2020

Over ten thousand people in the UK with IBD have entered their data over the past few days, many of them giving feedback on the Tool. This has helped us to make sure that the risk levels in the Tool are based on accurate, up-to-date information from patients.

In particular, it’s helped us better understand that people who are in a moderate-to-severe flare-up will now fall into a different risk category. This applies even if they are not taking an immunosuppressant and/or a biologic.

Working with the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG), we have made some small changes to the Tool. This only impacts a small number of people who have completed the survey.

We’re currently contacting people who might be affected, if they’ve given us permission to do so. If you’ve done the survey already you don’t have to do it again unless you want to.

You can also visit Crohn’s & Colitis UK for further information and support on coronavirus questions.
