An open day will raise awareness about how an inflammatory bowel disease can affect people.

Medical staff at St Mark’s Hospital, in Watford Road, Harrow, will give talks on Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis on Saturday, May 20. From 10.30am to 3.30pm.

The aim of the day is to provide information and support to those who have the conditions, as well as family or friends whose life may have been affected too.

There will also be a number of stalls filled with information from charities and support groups.
