Hepato Pancreato Biliary (HPB)

The Upper GI Nurse Specialist specialises in the care and support of people with a primary cancer that affects the liver, pancreas, bile-duct, gall bladder, oesophagus (gullet) or the stomach.

The nurse works closely with the Gastroenterology and Surgical Consultants and provides links with other healthcare professionals, both in the hospital and in the community to help to provide continuity of care. The Specialist Nurse is based in the hospital and has contact with patients both in and out of hospital.

The nurse visits patients within the ward areas, alongside consultants in clinics and in a dedicated nurse led weekly outpatient clinic. A telephone clinic is also held once per week.
