Meet the team

The IBD team

The IBD team at CDDFT is led by its consultant gastroenterologists and four IBD specialist nurses, who have all undergone training to care for with patients with IBD.We have a team of other doctors working with us, and we work closely with the surgical service as well as other colleagues across the CDDFT sites, including dieticians and pharmacists. We also work closely with the research team to actively recruit eligible patients to clinical trials and research studies. This allows us to offer newer treatments to patients through these clinical trials.

You should expect to meet your named consultant and one of the IBD nurses early in the course of your assessment or treatment so that you know who is in charge of your care.
