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 Will, GatewayC’s Programme Manager.

Could you tell us about your role?

I make sure that the right people do the right thing at the right time. The end result is a programme team who work diligently and effectively toward our strategic goals.

What made you decide to join the GatewayC team?

The opportunity was too good not to apply for. I wanted to take my experience of delivering clinical software and organisational change projects down a different route, focusing on something that would make a real difference to people affected by cancer, their families and care network. When I found out about how patient-centric this programme was, I knew it was the right team for me.

Being able to support my clinical colleagues is something I’ve always enjoyed; I’ll never be able to be a doctor or a nurse myself but I’ll do what I can to make sure they have good IT systems and software to help them do their amazing jobs.

What makes GatewayC unique?

Apart from our patient-centric approach, the best thing about GatewayC is the way we present the learning to our users. The video consultations take a lot of planning; the location, script, set and actors are all meticulously planned with our patients, GP leads and Oncology Specialists. The resulting films are so powerful, engaging and informative, they’re difficult to forget.

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

I drove through 9 European countries in 4 days in a car that cost £200 to raise money for a Special Educational Needs school in Caerphilly.
