Apr 2023Consultant surgeons Sheraz Markar and Richard Owen spent a year planning for the inaugural Oxford Gastro-Oesophageal Cancer Symposium (OGOS), hosted at St Catherine's College in Oxford.

Anne-Margrethe Phillips and Matt Carter gave a joint thirty minute presentation telling the audience about the role of OOSO, our close working relationship with clinicians, and how important it is for patients to have access to emotional and practical support from our community of former patients.

Feb 2023We recently held an afternoon workshop, inviting twelve of our regular volunteers and their partners to meet up with a small group of clinicians from the Churchill's UGI team. We discussed ways to further develop dietician services and advice given to us as patients, and we took a critical look at the patient pathway, from diagnosis through treatments and recovery, to see what could be done to help enhance the overall patient experience.
