Welcome to OPA (NI) 

The Oesophageal Patients Association is a National Registered Charity and was formed in 1985 when a few survivors of oesophageal cancer met and found tremendous reassurance in sharing experiences.  The members of the Association are all patients who have experienced such difficulties.  We have prepared leaflets on the problems, which we can talk about at first hand and we understand the fears that can be generated, the pains that can be suffered, and the effects on the digestive system that can be experienced.  Patients who have had their stomachs removed (gastrectomy) will also find our leaflets helpful as they experience very similar effects

Charity Number: 1062461
