Support Groups

You are not alone! A group of patients supported by the Specialist Nurses have founded Support Groups to help each other and anyone else suffering from the shock of being diagnosed with cancer. There are two groups available, one for Pancreatic cancer patients and one for Gastric and Oesophageal cancer patients.

    UGI Support Group

Regular meetings are open to both patients and carers, at any stage of their illness.

Meetings may have guest speakers or have informative education sessions regarding various aspects of coping with a cancer diagnosis, treatments and survivorship.


Pancreatic Support Group

Meetings take place once a month in the Macmillan Cancer Unit at Leighton Hospital, usually on the second Monday of the month. Future meeting dates can be viewed below or you can contact the Upper GI Nurse Specialists directly for further information.
