Have YOUR say on the future of pancreatitis research
In a recent national survey, we asked patients, their families, and healthcare professionals to say what questions they would like to see answered by future pancreatitis research. These questions related to the diagnosis, treatment, causes, management and support of patients with pancreatitis. Thank you to the 751 people who submitted questions!
Guts UK, British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) and the Pancreatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland (PSGBI) are supporting this project to help ensure that all voices are heard.

The submitted questions have been sorted, categorised and evidence-checked against already published research, and organised into 55 summary questions about pancreatitis. 

Questions that have already been answered by research are not included here.

Now is your chance to choose the questions that are most important to you. This survey is open to people with pancreatitis, their families, healthcare professionals, charities, and anyone else affected by these conditions.

This is your chance to have your say – so we want to hear from you!

The survey is now open and will close on the 9th October 2022. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and with your help, the findings will determine the direction of future pancreatitis research in the UK.

The survey has two separate lists of the questions, please select which best applies to you:   
  • One is a list of all 55 questions and is for people with pancreatitis (18+ years), family members, and healthcare professionals. complete the survey here
  • The other is a shorter list of 28 questions specifically for young people (18 years and under) with pancreatitis, their family members and carers. These are questions that were submitted by young people, as well as by other respondents (eg healthcare professionals, adult carer etc) in the earlier survey. These questions are also included in the survey's longer list of questions (see above): complete this survey here
