Follow Up

As part of patient cancer review following cancer treatment, the patient will be asked to return to the hospital to see one of the Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Team. The frequency of these review appointments will differ for each patient. The review appointments allow the team to assess a patients progress following treatment. The check-ups are also a good opportunity to discuss with your doctor any problems or worries you may have.

Follow up appointments will take place at outpatients in one of the three hospitals of the Belfast Trust; Belfast City Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital or the Mater Hospital or at the hospital where the patient was first seen.

If a patient notices any new symptoms, or they have any worries, they should contact the Oesophago-Gastric Clinical Nurse Specialist, their Consultant or their local GP to discuss the symptoms as they may need additional treatment or rehabilitation services such as a dietician or physiotherapy services.
