One of the highlights during 2011 for Barrett's Oesophagus Campaign (BOC) was the appointment of Lord Darzi of Denham as our Patron.

Lord Darzi, who holds the Paul Hamlyn Chair of Surgery at Imperial College London and the Chair of Surgery at the Institute of Cancer Research is best known for his tireless research into minimally invasive surgery and visionary plans for the future of health services and his 2008 report "High Quality Care for All: NHS Next Stage Review". His support and especially in our awareness plans are extremely welcome.

Joint Awareness Campaign
