HCUK are delighted to introduce Oliver Stovin.  He is a retired GP of 27 years and for the last 6 years has also been a part-time MacMillan GP and Cancer Lead for Cambridge and Peterborough, helping to improve cancer services in the county. 

Oliver Stovin HCUK Dr (Retired) in Residence

Oliver has a wealth of experience and also has a Barrett’s diagnosis himself.  As well as being a great help on our mobile diagnostic unit project, Oliver will also stay involved with the progress of The Cytosponge (an innovative diagnostic test for Barrett’s and OC) in his support to a project called BEST4.  Oliver has kindly agreed to continue his support and involvement with HCUK, which we are thrilled about.  Oliver is as passionate as we are about making a difference to awareness and early detection and appreciates how important support is to those newly diagnosed or living with Barrett’s or oesophageal cancer. 

Oliver can provide some really helpful guidance from a GP and clinical perspective.  Due to his recently retired status he is unable to give individual/personal medical advice but can help point you in the right direction. 

HCUK are also extremely fortunate to have two Clinical Trustees Tim Underwood,  Professor of Gastrointestinal Surgery Southampton University Hospital and Rebecca Fitzgerald, Professor of Cancer Prevention, Cambridge University,  who we can also refer to for appropriate medical advice when required.
