Upper GI Surgery

Upper GI Cancer

The Upper GI Cancer Team at the RUH consists of a group of specialist doctors, nurses and supporting staff from Surgery, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Radiology, Pathology, Palliative Care – that all work as part of a Multi-Disciplinary Team.

This team is part of the wider Avon, Somerset and Wiltshire Cancer Network. We work seamlessly with our specialist colleagues at the Cancer Centre at the United Bristol Universities Healthcare Trust to provide an effective and efficient service. Surgery is carried out in Bristol but subsequent treatments and after care are provided at the RUH.

Patients are seen promptly by a specialist and guided through the appropriate investigations to enable us to make the right choices and decisions relating to their treatment at all stages through their cancer journey.

Each of our patients is discussed at our specialist Multi-Disciplinary Meetings and an individual management plan formulated.
