  • Core - Digestive Disorders Foundation

    Core is a UK charity working to fight all diseases that affect the gut, liver and pancreas.  Collectively these are known as ‘digestive disorders’ and every year are responsible for one in eight deaths nationally.


    Core works to reduce deaths from digestive disorders,  helping people who live with these conditions to take control of their lives. Core supports medical research that works towards cures and better treatments. They also provide evidence-based information to help people understand their condition and make better decisions about it, and they work with the public and medical professionals to raise awareness of digestive disorders.

  • The digestive system


    Many people are unaware of the importance of the digestive system and unclear about the conditions that affect it – they can also be embarrassed to talk about symptoms they have.
