Abstract: Interest in the use of faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is steadily increasing since the approval of FMT in the management of recurrent clostridium difficile infections (rCDI) in 2014 by NICE and the explosion of international literature regarding the microbiome. Gut dysbiosis is considered to have a central role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). FMT as a treatment in IBD appears promising but is unproven. The aim of this survey was to assess the perceptions of clinicians in Wales potentially involved in patients who could benefit from the treatment of FMT.
