We work Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm. We may be out of the office when you call so please leave your name, hospital number (or date of birth) and a message. We aim to return your call the same working day, however at times this may be the next working day.
Please note, if your symptoms are serious and you need urgent attention we advise you to contact your GP or, if the situation warrants it, please attend the Accident & Emergency Department at your local hospital.
We can offer guidance and support from diagnosis and throughout the course of your treatment and aftercare.
The multi-disciplinary team consists of specialists who all have expert training and knowledge in the diagnosis, care and treatment of upper GI and HPB cancer.
