In April 2016 we were successful in securing a third CNS post for our team at BRI enabling us to resource some of the plans we have for service improvement. Karen Clemett is our third full time CNS at the BRI and has had many years' experience in upper GI surgery and as a specialist nurse.

We have now launched our UGI nurse led clinics which are to allow more flexibility for patients' in their follow up appointments. We will be able to see patients' following surgery for their 3 monthly, 6 monthly or annual follow up.

We are also able to offer Holistic needs assessments which are an appointment to create an individualised care plan with you and address the concerns that you have following a cancer diagnosis

We are also able to offer a comprehensive Prehabilitation service form this clinic to improve patients' preoperative fitness which has a positive impact on outcomes for our patients' 

 'Next Steps' Days

Have you recently had surgery at the BRI for upper GI cancer?

If the answer is 'yes' you should already be aware of our next steps day events at the BRI.

As part of your planned package of care following discharge form hospital you will be referred automatically to the Next Steps Day service.

Our support Macmillan support workers will be in contact with you in the next few weeks to invite you. Your consultant would like you to attend this valuable experience, so we are offering it to our patients throughout the region.
