Welcome to the IOSSG website.

Our research team at St Mark’s Hospital want to speak to people who have had a colectomy and stoma due to their inflammatory bowel disease. We particularly want to speak to people who chose to have this surgery due to the finding of changes in the colon lining (called dysplasia). We want to learn how to better communicate and support patients through the process of deciding whether or not to have a colectomy for this condition. We can only do this if we hear directly from people who have experienced this and can tell us their stories and tell us what worked or didn’t when speaking to their doctors. If you are interested in taking part then please do read the information via this weblink: https://goo.gl/forms/Gnvrga854ItkCGCq1
