About us

Who we are
A support group for those having had gastro-oesophageal surgery, their carers or close family members or friends. Our group members (both male and female) come from a wide range of backgrounds and occupations, and all have very different stories to tell.

Our aim
We all have one thing in common however, and that is we all aim to help each other, very much employing the ethos of the Oesophageal Patients Association (OPA) 'patients providing support and guidance to other patients'.

Meeting Structure
Our meetings take place at Corrs Corner Hotel, Newtownabbey, all dates and times will be updated on this page.

How much does it cost?
There are no 'membership' fees.

How do I know when the next meeting is taking place?
Details of forthcoming meetings will be displayed on this page and will be posted or e-mailed to a mailing list of group members. If you would like to be added to this list, please contact us. Where possible (to save on postage and administration costs) we would prefer to contact members by e-mail.
