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 Olivia, Media Technologist at The Christie School of Oncology.

Could you tell us about your role?

As part of my role within The Christie School of Oncology, alongside my colleague Tom, I film and edit the patient/GP scenarios and specialist interviews for each GatewayC course. I also contribute to the writing of the scripts and hiring the actors for each new cancer course.

What made you want to support the GatewayC programme?

As a carer for someone with cancer, it is really rewarding to be a part of a project that is contributing to the early detection of cancer and enhancing patient experience.

What makes GatewayC unique?

It’s an innovative idea that has taken a new perspective on GP education.

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

I have been playing the piano since I was a 10 and the drums since I was 13.
