The gut trust has launched a unique interactive on line IBS self management programme. A paper version is available but lacks the depth of the on line version. Some people have no internet access of their own or prefer to take part in the programme in a supportive group setting. One local group is currently piloting this group approach and evaluating the effect on participants' quality of life. Early reports are encouraging and the gut trust wants to now widen the availabilty of this programme by providing all of its local groups with a venue, laptop, internet access, training and support to provide this programme in the local community.
