Heartburn Cancer UK and Guts UK are collaborating with a pharmaceutical company and a market research firm to conduct patient research with Oesophago-Gastric cancer patients.

 The purpose of the research is to

  • Raise awareness of patients experience of Oesophago-Gastric Cancer and treatment, with the aim of improving the quality of cancer care.
  • The learnings will be communicated through a publication of case studies of patients’ lives with Oesophago-Gastric Cancer, to illustrate how Oesophago-Gastric cancer affects patients and their loved ones.
  • The case studies and report will take the form of a booklet that will be presented to parliamentarians, NHS policymakers, British media as well as healthcare practitioners.

The research is sponsored by a pharmaceutical company, and their name will be revealed on completion of the research. Research Partnership, a global healthcare market research agency, will conduct the research through a 90-minute discussion via an online platform. The interviews will be followed by a 7-day digital journal, which is optional. Through a smartphone, patients will be asked to do some tasks that will require 10 min per day over 7 days (70 minutes).

Patients taking part in the study will be compensated for their time. If you are keen to participate and share your stories, you can leave your details at the below secure web link.
