Welcome to the OPA Cancer Charity -  It's our Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD)Week!

Emmerdale actress Fiona Wade is collaborating with the OPA to launch the UK’s first Reflux Awareness Week, urging people to Get Educated, Get Evaluated and Get Treated.

Running from 23 – 29 November, Reflux Awareness Week will offer a series of online patient and healthcare professional education events, along with information clinics in treatment centres across the UK, to shine a spotlight on the symptoms of reflux, associated conditions and treatment options.

The OPA has led the fight against oesophageal and gastric cancers for over 30 years. Their purpose is to support patients, families, carers and  to raise awareness of these cancers and their prevention. Whatever stage you're at the OPA is here to help you.
