The article reports that ulcerative colitis and crohn's disease collectively termed inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are complex disorders reflected by wide variation in clinical practice. These guidelines, commissioned by the Clinical Services' Committee of the British Society of Gastroenterology for clinicians and allied professionals caring for patients with IBD in Great Britain, provide an evidence based document describing good clinical practice for investigation and treatment. The guidelines are intended to bring consistency, but should not necessarily be regarded as the standard of care for all patients. Individual cases must be managed on the basis of all clinical data available for that case.
