Due to various factors, including hostile actions from rival bidders and restrictions due to Govid 19, many of the planned groups will no longer materialise with some existing groups closing or facing reorganisation. More details will be posted here soon.
In the meantime, if you are interested in starting or running a Barrett's patient support group, please contact enquiries@BarrettsWessex.org.ukk. There are some websites and custom URLs available, too.
While we may be making changes, the support phoneline remains the same.
07771 567009 is normally available 7 days a week between 10:00 am and 5:30 pm but please be prepared to leave a message, or send a text.
Support is available by email to enquiries@BarrettsWessex.org.uk
The online Forum has been subsumed into Facebook Group BarrettsEsophagusAwareness
Support Groups specifically for those with Barrett's Oesophagus and acid reflux hoping to reduce deaths to oesophageal cancer through early diagnosis,
because prevention is better than cure!
Barrett's Support Groups provide support specifically for Barrett's patients & others.
Other Support Groups provide support to those with Barrett's as well as other services.
If there is no group in your area (yet), would you be prepared to help start one? Contact any of the existing groups for more details.
Meanwhile the on-line Barrett's Forum allows you to meet up with others with the condition wherever they live.
This site is intended to be a directory to useful sites or items thereon specific to Barrett's Oesophagus and patient support rather than a reinvention of the wheel.
There are a number of charities dealing with oesophageal disorders, mainly oesophageal cancer, each with its own raison d'être. This site is concerned primarily in pointing visitors in the right direction for any information specifically concerning Barrett's Oesophagus.
This hub was initiated by the patient support charity Barrett's Wessex with the principal aim to reduce the number of deaths to oesophageal cancer through raising awareness of its potential pre-cancerous lesion, Barrett's Oesophagus, but is intended to carry information and links from all charities and groups concerned with Barrett's Oesophagus patient support and education in the UK.
