The centralisation of care for oesophageal cancer patients improves outcomes but can make it harder for patients and healthcare staff. In fact, patients often suffer from a terrible patient experience (Cancer Patient Experience survey: CPES data) and from confusion over who is in charge of their care.

For Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) the monitoring of patients across different hospital sites is difficult: this leads to increased inefficiencies of care, administrative burdens and differences in treatment pathways.

Living With Oesophageal Cancer provides patients with one accurate and tailored source of information, which they can access at any time. It improves communication with their complete care team (nurse, dietician, physiotherapist, psychologist) and enables them to contribute more to their own care decisions. For clinicians, it facilitates better monitoring of patients across hospital trusts, more efficient communications with patients, and reduces DNA rates and A+E attendances.
