Upper gastrointestinal cancer
The upper gastrointestinal (UGI) cancer team consists of two consultants. The team has the support of two Clinical Nurse Specialists.
The team will meet every week. All patients with suspected or diagnosed UGI cancer are discussed and their plans for treatment agreed. Any patient diagnosed with a UGI cancer at this weekly meeting is referred to Aintree Hospital for further treatment, as UGI cancer surgery is currently not carried out at this Trust.
