To our knowledge the BAM Support UK: Coventry group (formerly UHCW Patient Panel group ) is the only support group we are aware of in the UK specifically for BAD patients. Our members have found this group to be a fantastic support as it provides sufferers with the opportunity to find out more about the condition from the clinical specialist team and meet with others who know exactly how you have been suffering and how it makes you feel. Talking to other people at the meetings and listening to others stories can really help to come to terms with life with BAD and realise you're not alone.
Because we have found this to have been so invaluable to us we decided to set up our BAD Support UK Charity to help others who suffer from BAD and we receive advisory clinical support from the UHCW Clinical Specialist team in our charity work.
We will also be expanding our Patient Meetings and Social Groups in 2017 to enable others across the UK to get together with others who have BAD. To follow our progress and to see when groups are meeting near to you please take a look at our Patient Meetings Section. If you would like to start a support group in your area then BAD Support UK are happy to help guide and support you in setting one up. Please contact using our online Coordinator Information Request Form.
We are aware of some other BAD specific websites and Facebook pages where you can speak with others who have our condition and there are links to lots of key information about the condition. Links to these groups and websites can be found on our Links Page.
Unlike sufferers with other bowel conditions (such as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis) who have an inflammatory bowel disease specialist nurse, we are unaware of any hospitals having a specialist nurse support service for BAD. If you are aware of a hospital offering this support then please do let BAM Support UK know by emailing us using our Contact Form.
