What do I do when the medication prescribed from clinic runs out?

It should be clear following your consultation whether your treatment should stop or continue. If not, or if you are unsure what you have been told, please ask. You can do this by contacting the IBD helpline or by contacting your GP’s surgery who will have a letter regarding this. Otherwise it may be on the copy of the clinic letter that you receive.

The initial prescription may be given in clinic but subsequent repeat prescriptions should be obtained from your GP – please contact your GP’s surgery to arrange these.
