Upper Gastro Intestinal (Upper GI) Cancers
This page provides details of NCIN's work on upper GI cancer and the Upper GI Site Specific Clinical Reference Group (SSCRG). This group covers cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, pancreas (including duodenum and ampulla) and liver (including primary and secondary liver cancers, bile duct and gall bladder).
The Chair of the UGI SSCRG is Mr William Allum, Consultant Upper GI Surgeon, The Royal Marsden Hospital, London.
NCIN (London) support the SSCRG's analytical work programme and lead on requests for data on upper GI cancers.
