OA/TOF is not just a childhood condition, in October 2021, TOFS published a position paper entitled: “Towards a Holistic Model for the treatment of those born with Oesophageal Atresia (OA) from diagnosis to transition and adult care”. This paper calls for the provision of centralised services to enable children and adults to achieve the highest standard of care.
