We would like to invite you to take part in a research study conducted by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) to investigate the relevance of Illness Anxiety and links with other psychological factors in Barrett’s.

We require people living with Barrett’s Esophagus for an online study about Illness Anxiety.
If you can help or know someone who can please follow the link below.

I do hope the researchers get a good response to this request.

As many here will know, it i an issue I have previously focussed on, receiving numerous communications from the "Fearful Newly Diagnosed" (FNDs) some of which were shown on page 13 of - the summer 2018 edition of Barrett;s News .
It was also mentioned by the GP, Dr Oliver Morris, speaking at our 2017 AGM when he talked of the "Doctor's Dilemma": should he tell Mrs A she has Barrett's knowing the risk of her anxiety could be worse than the risks from her Barrett's and by Dr David Lloyd (Welsh Assembly Member) when discussing RFA provision for Wales, who provided the FND label.

The addenda for the Down With Acid book, of items that may make it into the next edition, also carries a page on - Patient Concerns .

If you, or someone you know, has Barrett's, please do take the time to complete the survey: - BE SMAART
