TOFS has issued a challenge to the NHS to ensure consistent lifelong multi-disciplinary care for people born with OA regardless of their age, or where they live in the UK.
Our paper, “Towards a holistic model for the treatment of those born with Oesophageal Atresia (OA) from diagnosis to transition and adult care” demands the NHS recognise OA/TOF as a lifelong illness and to put practices and procedures in place to ensure the best care possible for those affected by it.
Join us if you would like to talk to the paper’s authors, Graham Slater, TOFS’ trustee and Special Patient Advisor to the international federation of OA patient support groups (EAT), and Julia Faulkner, TOFS’ Medical Advisory Group member and paediatric dietitian for an informal Q&A to learn more about this important development.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the live event or you can get in early and submit your questions in the box below. (Please note, the cut-off for pre-submitted questions is 5pm (UK) on Tuesday 30th November.)
