Welcome to the Dundee Group

Welcome to the support group for Dundee and the surrounding area. The support group was originally set up for post surgery however we have had the 'odd' non surgical patient attend - everyone is welcome! We welcome anyone diagnosed with, recovering from, or having recovered from oesophageal or stomach cancer. We also welcome those facing gastric difficulties or individuals experiencing difficulty swallowing or eating food. Whatever your circumstances, we are here to offer support, and we hope you will consider joining us at our next group meeting. We meet quarterly and details of our next meetings are updated here regularly.We held our meetings on the first Monday of every second month.
