ABSTRACT
Long term follow up of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is rarely critically audited. The aim of the study is to compare quality of care of patients with IBD in specialist IBD clinic and general gastroenterology clinics using defined criteria. Using these criteria, even in a specialist IBD clinic, a substantial minority of patients receive suboptimal monitoring and treatment.
