Welcome to the Gartnavel Support Group

Welcome to the support group for Gartnavel 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. The Upper GI Support Group meets monthly in the Glasgow centre, 1st Friday of month, 1.30pm-3pm. Group is open to anyone with an Upper GI cancer and their relatives/carers. It's simply drop-in so you don't need to book in avance.
