Promoting IBS Awareness Month in AprilThursday 23rd March 2017
Throughout April, The IBS Network the national charity that supports people living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, will be promoting IBS Awareness Month. By talking openly about this debilitating long-term condition, the charity aims to encourage more research, improve education and promote effective self-management for those with IBS. At any one time, the illness affects between 10-20% of the UK population, or approximately 12 million people and is believed to cost the NHS £200m annually.*
To mark IBS Awareness Month, the charity is offering the first 100 people who sign up to become members of The IBS Network in April the chance to receive a free Radar Key.**

Members benefit from accessing advice from specialist IBS medical professionals via the helpline and online, use of the IBS Self-Care Programme and symptom tracker as well as a ‘Can’t Wait’ card, including an International travel card, factsheets, specialist recipes and ongoing support.
