Are you a GP or nurse with IBS?

A healthcare company is seeking 200 volunteers with IBS to take part in a pilot assessment on the acceptability of a new probiotic - VSL#3 - which contains a blend of 450 billion live bacteria in each sachet.

If you volunteer, the pilot will involve you taking VSL#3 for one month and taking part in a 5-minute telephone assessment before and after taking the probiotic.

VSL#3 has been available in the US and many European countries for some time – this pilot is being conducted to help determine the best way of making VSL#3 available in the UK.

If you, or a GP or nurse colleague in your practice, would like to take part in this pilot, please telephone 0870 600 1371 (between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday) for further information, or email VSL@hah.co.uk, and Healthcare at Home will contact you with further details.

Please note that your personal details will be kept confidential. There are no costs involved in participating in this pilot.

This pilot assessment is being administered by Healthcare at Home Ltd on behalf of its UK client. Healthcare at Home is an independent company specializing in home-based treatments and procedures.
