Telephone and online video appointments for coeliac disease


Over the past year, appointments for coeliac disease have moved away from face to face towards telephone or online video consultations, due to the pandemic.

What will healthcare look like in the future? Healthcare professionals need to hear the voice of people with coeliac disease regarding your experience and preference for appointments.

The study aims to explore the acceptability of telephone and online video appointments in a UK population of adults with coeliac disease.

The study findings will be presented to GPs, hospital doctors and dietitians with the aim of informing their annual review provision for people with coeliac disease.

If you are not presently offered an annual review, or you choose not to attend, your views on this issue are very important too.
