New GatewayC Course: Cervical Cancer – Early Diagnosis

4th November 2021

The GatewayC team are delighted to announce that we have a new course ‘Cervical Cancer-Early Diagnosis’ available to all healthcare professionals on GatewayC.

Cervical cancer is the 14th most common cancer in women in the UK, with around 3,200 women diagnosed each year. Our new course supports primary care professionals to recognise the presentation of cervical cancer and covers clinical decision-making when referring patients on a suspected cancer pathway.

The course should take approximately 1 hour to complete.
