Is the IF Registry only for England?
All centres for Intestinal Failure and Home Parenteral Nutrition designated under NHS England commissioned services are mandated to submit via the IF Registry. Northern Ireland, as a commissioned IF service, also reports as a mandatory requirement of healthcare commissioning. As BAPEN is a UK wide organisation we encourage reporting via the IF Registry from Scotland and Wales to continue to inform and benchmark services across the UK.
