We are thrilled to have held a successful media day yesterday to promote the imminent opening of our mobile screening unit for Barrett’s oesophagus and were delighted to have both ITV News Anglia and BBC South East attend and provide coverage. 

This link to the ITV news item shows local GP and Managing Partner at Granta Medical Practice, James Morrow, taking The Cytosponge Test.  It also includes interviews with HCUK Chairman, Mimi McCord, highlighting why it is so important to discuss persistent heartburn with your GP.  Cancer Survivor, Liz talks about how the device changed her life when she volunteered to take part in the trial as a healthy patient and our Trustee, Professor Rebecca Fitzgerald who heads up the team that has developed The Cytosponge at The University of Cambridge and Addenbrooks Hospital, gives a great explanation of how the sponge works. 


Next we look forward to welcoming the first patients on 11th June, which is yet another step closer to our goal of The Cytosponge being available to screen for Barrett’s oesophagus in primary care throughout the UK.
