Bile duct cancer information for UHL patients

University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL) information  

The Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Nurse Specialists are based at the Leicester General Hospital, but they will review patients who come to Leicester Royal Infirmary. The Hepatobiliary Patient Information Group produces leaflets that you may find useful:

Hepatobiliary and pancreatic nurse specialist service 

Your multidisciplinary team (MDT) for hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancer

Treatment for cancer of the bile duct

Why am I not suitable for a biopsy? 

Going home after biliary stent insertion

What happens now that my treatments for hepatobiliary cancer have finished?

Support and financial information for patients with hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancer

More information can be found on the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Unit  website: Leicester HPB Unit.

Please be aware that even if you have been diagnosed with bile duct cancer not all of the leaflets will be relevant to your care. Leaflets relevant to your care will be given to you at the appropriate time, giving you the chance to discuss them with your healthcare team.   

If you would like more information, including how to contact the nurse specialist team, please contact the Cancer Information Centre.
