ABSTRACT
Inflammatory bowel disease patients are amenable to alternative models of healthcare and nurse specialist led services. They want better access to GI specialist knowledge, preferentially from their GI consultant but happy to be treated by other healthcare personnel with in-depth knowledge of their condition. Previous patient surveys found that patients felt that specialist nurses have more time to discuss issues and they do not want to bother the busy doctors with them. Are doctors now too busy to listen to their patients' concerns? Nurse specialists are good patient educators, and they reduce our workload by reinforcement and repetition of important clinical information.
