Upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers include oesophageal cancer, stomach cancer, small bowel cancer, pancreatic cancer, liver cancer and cancers of the biliary system.
We provide the best possible care for patients who are diagnosed with all types of upper gastrointestinal cancers. We provide support, information, counselling and education to you and your relatives and carers throughout treatment.
A cancer diagnosis has a great impact on patients and carers, physically, emotionally, and psychologically. We aim to provide the highest possible standard of care for all our patients at every stage in their pathway.
What we do
The upper GI cancer team provides a diagnostic and treatment service for patients with suspected or confirmed cancer after referral from their GP or another healthcare professional.
Depending on the type and staging of the disease, treatment options for upper GI cancer will vary. The main treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
