IBS in GP (2021 update)

This is an updated guideline from the BGS on IBS. It was published in June 2021. The last guideline they published was in 2007. NICE also has a guideline on IBS, which was published in 2008, but which has been updated several times since then. This is much more detailed and is, I think, therefore more useful.

If you are interested in the pathophysiology of IBS, then a 10 minute read through that section of the guideline is really very useful. I will definitely be changing how I talk to patients with IBS based upon my reading of this.

I am going to outline what is new or what I found interesting in this guideline, and then going to do a summary of the guideline.

"Joining NASGP's Locum Chambers in Essex after CCT has been a fantastic decision for me. The Chambers structure provides support with my locum work as well as a peer support network with regular meetings.

The Chambers support also extends to support with complaints when these occur. This is an amazing benefit that helps to minimise the professional isolation that can come with being a locum.

The Instant Book feature within LocumDeck makes arranging sessions easy. Whilst getting things set up initially does take a bit of work, this eventually pays off and the return on this initial time investment is impressive. New features are always being added based on feedback from members. "
