MeReC Extra 33

The National Prescribing Centre (NPC) has published MeReC Extra 32 (PDF). It summarises the new help available from the NPC and the recent NICE Guidance on irritable bowel syndrome.

Recent NPC developments include NPCi, MyNPC Account for tailored email alerts and changes to the MeReC publication portfolio to include both paper and Internet publications.

This MeReC also summarises the recent NICE Guideline covering the diagnosis and management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in adults. Diagnosis, red flag symptoms, self-help measures and medication are all discussed.

Action: Clinicians will find this MeReC Extra to be useful and informative. Changes at the NPC will allow busy clinicians to easily access relevant information when keeping up-to-date.
