TalkHealth, a social media community in the United Kingdom that provides health information and online forums, and monthly “online clinics” where participants can ask questions of health experts and organizations for a given category of conditions, is currently conducting its annual Bladder, Bowel and Digestive Health Clinic.
TalkHealth is presenting this month’s clinic in cooperation with NHS Choices, the Bladder and Bowel Foundation, The IBS Network, which is the U.K. national charity specifically for irritable bowel syndrome, and PromoCon, a national service of Disabled Living for adults and children facing continence issues. The 2015 Bladder, Bowel and Digestive Health Clinic, which is an online forum, is currently open and accepting questions for the above dates only. Readers can access it by clicking the above link.
Some past clinic topics for various health conditions, including the 2013 and 2014 bladder, bowel and IBS clinics, and the August 2013 clinic for chronic fatigue syndrome (also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis) or fibromyalgia, both of which commonly overlap with IBS, are archived on the TalkHealth website, although they no longer accept questions
IBS Impact hopes TalkHealth provides another source of reputable information and support to our U.K. readers. In addition to the clinic this month, please browse the rest of the TalkHealth website, including the online forums for IBS, and feel free to leave comments on this post for the benefit of other IBS Impact readers as to if you find the resources useful.
