Summary People with pancreatitis are at long-term risk of nutritional problems and diabetes, and also have an increased risk of pancreatic cancer, which is even higher in people with hereditary pancreatitis. It is necessary to identify those who need to be followed up and what tests are required. Pancreatitis is a serious and complex condition. It causes immense suffering, can have a severe effect on quality of life and may result in reduced life expectancy. In the past, there has been lack of knowledge on how to manage pancreatitis and this has resulted in clinicians avoiding those with the disease and conflicting advice being offered. With this guideline it is hoped that sound advice will be provided to enable people with pancreatitis to receive appropriate care to improve the outcomes from this difficult condition.
