In this post, we’re introducing Dr. Rebecca Leon, GP Partner in East Cheshire and GP Lead in cancer education at The School of Oncology.
Could you tell us about your role?
I am a GP educator working collaboratively with cancer specialists with the aim of improving the knowledge and confidence of diagnosing, treating and supporting patients in the community.
What made you want to support the GatewayC programme?
GatewayC links in with projects I am already involved with and I wanted to work with a forward-thinking, innovative group of people to provide GP education in an easily accessible and modern format.
Finally, could you tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
I have travelled extensively over the years. India is the next place I want to conquer. I spent a wonderful year out of working/researching where I explored (and partied) in Manhattan, New York, during my mid-20s!
