Drop-in / discussion

We had a drop-in / discussion evening on Wednesday 2nd May 2018 when we had an informal discussion about Food which concluded, “It's not so much of what we eat, but how we eat it that can make the biggest contribution to increasing or decreasing reflux episodes.” The strategies employed in The Down with Acid, book were promoted.

Public Meeting

A free pubic lecture evening was held on 27th September 2017 for anyone concerned with Persistent heartburn and its possible complications with talks from consultant surgeons Priyantha Siriwardana and Cheuk Bong Tang from Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford and Chris Robinson (chairman of Barrett's Wessex charity and author of Down With Acid).
