Conference delegates testimonials from 2016

In answer to the question, what did you particularly like about the day, comments included:

“It felt amazing to be able to speak freely and not feel ashamed or embarrassed and the people were just fabulous.”

As a health worker it was beneficial to the work I do with clients to get an insight into the patients perspective of IBS.  Also I gained knowledge of how patients are treated with the NHS”

“I was very much engaged in the morning; clear presentations, facilitated debate and discussion, cookery demonstration excellent.”

“I thought the diversity of presentations and balance of personal and professional experience made the day accessible and prevented information overload”

“loved hearing from the medics”

“Thank you so much for your brilliantly organised day and joining The Network last year was a positive move, so thank you”

“I wanted to drop you a line to express my appreciation for the Conference you held a few weeks back.  I was there and was quite inspired to see some many other people with similar complaints to myself and learn that I'm not alone in my suffering.” 

“Thank you so much and I hope there will be more in the future as the conference was interesting and very educational.”
