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 Naomi, GatewayC’s Senior Administrator.

Could you tell us about your role?

I provide administrative and secretarial support to the GatewayC team and am the first point of contact to support technical queries. I help the programme manager to ensure that everything is running smoothly.

What made you want to support the GatewayC programme?

I wanted to work as part of a programme, especially one that is going to make such a positive impact on the ongoing problem that affects so many people. 1 in 2 people in the UK will have cancer at some point in their lifetime and chances of survival are much higher when diagnosed at an early stage.

What makes GatewayC unique?

I like the filmed consultations; they provide a more interactive type of learning. As part of the team, I see how much passion is put into the creation of the courses, both from the development team but also with user representatives who provide a first person view on the experience of a diagnosis.

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

I attended the Adult Mental Health First Aid Lite (CET) course and I am now trained in first aid for mental health.
