About Oesophageal Patients Association

The Oesophageal Patients Association (OPA) is a registered cancer charity formed in 1985. We have helped thousands of patients, carers and families who have been affected by oesophageal or gastric difficulties. We have prepared medically approved booklets and fact sheets all free of charge about the problems these types of cancer can generate, the pains that can be suffered and the effects on the digestive system that can be experienced.

Informal meetings for patients and carers are regularly held at regional centres around the UK. The OPA have introduced Zoom meetings with a Patient Buddy, please contact us if you would like further details. Call the cancer support helpline on 0121 704 9860 or email enquiries@opa.org.uk and we will be happy to arrange this for you. Instructions for Zoom - https://www.opa.org.uk/edit/files/zoom_instructions_v1.pdf

Don't forget our very informative website www.opa.org.uk where you can obtain details of all meetings, useful resource and much much more.

If you prefer to chat, our helpline number is 0121 704 9860 or you can email us at enquiries@opa.org.uk
