Oxfordshire Oesophageal and Stomach Organisation (OOSO)

OOSO was founded in 2009 by a former patient of oesophageal cancer. We make contact with patients through introduction by the Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford. Our primary aim is to help new patients and their carers to get through their own ordeals. Additionally, we support the research that the clinical team performs at the Churchill.

OOSO helps in these ways:

  • We are invited onto the Upper GI ward in Oxford by the CNS�s to meet new patients and their carers.
  • We are happy to meet patients and their carers in their own homes.
  • We provide literature which is medically approved and given to new patients to help answer any questions they may have.
  • We offer telephone support seven days a week between 8am and 10pm. This line is manned by trained former patients - 07711 160 766
  • Regular quarterly meetings - attended by the members of OOSO as well as members of the clinical team in Oxford.
  • Website information at
  • Email contact at
Our work is endorsed by the clinical team and it is recognised as part of the patient�s on-going management. The organisation is on various committees representing �the people�s voice� in cancer research and patient improvement. All personal details are confidential to the organisation and are stored in accordance with the Date Protection Act of 1998.
