Outpatient clinics

On your first visit to an IBD clinic, you will be seen by one of the consultants or by the IBD nurses in one of their clinics, if you have had an endoscopy then you may have already had a brief telephone discussion with one of the IBD nurses about your diagnosis.

All of the clinics are held in the main outpatient department either on the first or second floor.  Therefore, it is important that you always “book-in” at the main outpatient desk so you can be directed to the appropriate waiting area.  When you book in at the main desk this will alert the clinician running the clinic that you have arrived for your appointment.

Telephone Clinic

As IBD is a long-term disease, there may come a time when your condition is so stable that you might not need routine appointments at the hospital.  It may be appropriate for you to go onto the telephone clinic.  The IBD nurse will phone you at a pre-arranged time to review your condition.  

This service is also offered to patients starting on new medications of having a flare so they don’t have to visit the hospital on a weekly of fortnightly basis.

Adolescent Transition and Young Persons Clinic

These clinics are for young people who have either been under the care of the Paediatricians or newly diagnosed with IBD.  The transition clinics are held every 6 months and the young person is seen by Dr Philips (Consultant Gastroenterologist), a Paediatrician and an IBD Nurse Specialist. The Young Persons clinic is also held every 6 months and held by Dr Philips and an IBD Nurse.

Moving from paediatric to adult care can be a difficult time – as a  child your parents or guardian are responsible for your care, as an adolescent you have to learn to take on that responsibility yourself. This clinic is the first stage in that process.

Pre-conception and Pregnancy clinic

This clinic has been developed especially to help with education regarding the effects of medications on fertility, pregnancy and breast feeding; along with monitoring and management of disease during pre-conception, pregnancy, and post-partum.

Follow up appointments

After your appointment you will be offered a subsequent appointment to be seen again either by your consultant, the specialist nurses or by another member of the allied health professional team.

If you need to change your appointment this can be done via the contact centre on 01904 726400.

Visiting cancelled

Due to the increasing number of cases of coronavirus across the UK, York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has made the decision to cancel all visiting to all its hospital sites in order to ensure the safety of patients and staff.

There are three exemptions to the ruling which are for one parent of a sick child under 18, for the partner of a woman giving birth and end of life patients at the discretion of the ward sister.

We would ask people to respect this decision and to treat our staff, who will be enforcing the visiting restrictions, with courtesy and respect.  For more information visit our website.

Outpatient appointments

We know that NHS services will come under intense pressure as the coronavirus spreads, and as a Trust we need to redirect staff, free up staff for refresher training and carry out any works as necessary, so we are able to maximise capacity for patients for when the number of infections peak.  We also need to reduce the number of people coming into our hospitals to protect our patients, as well as keeping our staff safe, well and able to come into work.

To do this, with effect from Tuesday 24 March 2020, along with other trusts in the Humber Coast and Vale partnerships, we have made the collective decision to suspend all non-urgent routine outpatient appointments for at least three months.  Urgent and emergency cases and cancer appointments will be carrying on as normal.

These are unprecedented times and we thank you for your understanding.  We know many people waiting for treatment will be disappointed or worried but please not contact the hospital as we will be contacting everyone directly affected in the coming days and weeks.

If you do not receive a letter or a phone call from the hospital, please turn up for your scheduled appointment as normal unless you have symptoms of coronavirus, a cold, flu or norovirus in which case you should contact us to cancel your appointment by clicking here.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.

Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home.  After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.

But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they're at home for longer than 14 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at

If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.  Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you cannot go online.
