Participants wanted for new NHS bowel study

The NHS is appealing for people with diarrhoea and other gut issues to get participate in a new study.

The Lincolnshire Poacher Study hopes to find new ways of treating people with irritable bowel syndrome.

The NHS Lincolnshire Community Health Services says anyone with these symptoms who wants to take part should make an appointment with their GP to discuss it further.

It’s hoped the study will be able to treat both the participants and people with similar conditions in the future.

The research study is a joint initiative with the University of Lincoln and University of Hull.
