Barrett's Wessex is a regional patient support & education charity (reg. no. 1148727)

On average one person an hour dies of oesophageal cancer in UK.

There may be one million people with the pre-cancerous condition, Barrett's Oesophagus, but only 10% have been identified and will be screened to minimise the risk of progression to cancer.

Please note. This site is run by non medically trained personnel. Although we take advice from medical colleagues nothing on this site should be taken as a replacement for seeing your own doctor.
