With communication at the heart of GatewayC and fundamental to improving patient care, this blog series focuses on introductions and reflections from the team behind the programme.

In this post, we’re introducing Dr.Sarah Taylor, GatewayC’s GP Lead.

 

Could you tell us about your role?

For my role as GP lead for GatewayC, I gather patient stories and specialist opinions to inform the education and the filmed consultations on GatewayC. I also interview our clinical oncology specialists and get to ask lots of interesting questions!

 

What made you want to support the GatewayC programme?

As a GP, I can see how education for primary care staff, including GPs, is an important part of increasing early diagnosis to in turn improve outcomes for our patients.

 

What makes GatewayC unique?

The filmed patient-GP consultations within each course are true to life, interesting to watch and relatable for GPs like me!

 

Finally, could you tell us an interesting fact about yourself?

I have run 5 marathons!
