Crohn’s Disease

12th November 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline is mainly relevant for secondary care and doesn’t really change our practice. There are a few useful bits for us.

General Information:

  • Stop Smoking – encourage this as has a huge impact on relapse rates
  • Fertility – ensure women are aware of the impact of medication / surgery on their fertility.
  • Osteopenia and fracture risk – ensure you assess patients for fracture risk as per the recent NICE guideline. Remember that patients may have low BMI or frequent use of steroids which also increases risk.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
