Play your part in IBS research

4th November 2019

Do you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and live in the UK?

Researchers would like to invite you to participate in an online survey conducted by King’s College London on the experiences of healthcare services towards people with IBS, including your diagnosis and access to dietary advice.

What is the purpose of this study?

IBS is a common functional gastrointestinal disorder that can have a significant impact on people’s quality of life. The experiences of people with IBS in receiving a diagnosis of IBS, as well as appropriate dietary advice, have not been widely documented. The team are therefore interested in understanding your experience in being told you have IBS by your doctor (e.g. who informed you, what investigations you had), as well as receiving dietary advice by your doctor and/or dietitian.

Professor Kevin Whelan, Dr Miranda Lomer & Dr Eirini Dimldi are particularly interested in patients’ experience of the diagnosis and dietary care of their IBS. The ultimate aim is to understand what happens in clinical practice, identify potential needs/barriers and ultimately improve patient’s care.

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes. On completion, you can choose to enter a competition to win an 32GB iPad.

For further information, email Dr Eirini Dimidi at or Lucy Walker at
