Core is the only charity in the UK that funds research into the entire range of gut, liver, intestinal and bowel illnesses. The charity was established in 1971 with the help and support of the British Society of Gastroenterologists and today it supports Clinical Research Fellows and Research Scientists at hospitals and universities throughout the UK, investigating conditions such as pancreatitis, hepatitis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and digestive cancers. We have a major interest in providing patients with good, accurate information about their illness. We publish 25 patient information leaflets and 15 fact-sheets explaining the nature of various gut illnesses and their treatment.
The British Dietetic Association (BDA) is the only body in the UK representing the whole of the dietetic workforce, we are one of the oldest and most experienced dietetic organisations in the world.
We provide a large amount of information for anyone interested in food and nutrition as well as dietetics as a career. If you are a BDA member you will also have access to a wide variety of resources and support in your work or practice.
