Oesophageal and gastric cancer services at UCLH

UCLH is a specialist centre for the diagnosis and treatment of oesophageal and gastric cancer.

This means that patients will have some of their cancer treatment at their local hospital, but may be seen at UCLH for some specialist treatment, for example, surgery or specialist radiotherapy.

We work closely with local hospitals, GPs and other community services to ensure a smooth transition of your care between different hospitals.

We recognise that being diagnosed with cancer can be a difficult time for you and those close to you. The information on these web pages will give you an overview of the expert care you can expect to receive at UCLH. You will also be introduced to different types of healthcare professionals that you may meet along the way.
