Patient Relations

Our vision is to create a united voice, connecting scientific, medical and patient communities

Our aims in patient relations are 

  • to establish active partnerships with European patient organisations and to carry out joint activities
  • to consult, listen to and learn from patient organisations and to support them
  • to act as a central hub of European digestive health information
  • to work with national and specialist medical societies to increase patient organisation involvement in digestive health
  • to work in conjunction with patient organisations to help raise public awareness of gastrointestinal diseases and screening programmes
  • to share best practice and encourage joint working initiatives with and between patient organisations.
