Gateway C: Online Cancer Education for Primary Care

Gateway-C is a high-quality, evidence-based online educational platform supporting primary care and community services in the better, and early, detection of cancer and improved management, care and support for people affected by cancer. Developed by GPs, specialists and patients, Gateway C courses are endorsed by Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support. Each course is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners and can be used to earn CPD credits.

The project is hosted at The Christie School of Oncology and is delivered by the Greater Manchester Cancer Alliance Cancer Education Team.

The platform aims to improve cancer outcomes by facilitating earlier and faster diagnosis and improving patient experience, through:

  • Improved knowledge of symptoms
  • Increased confidence in when, and when not, to refer a patient
  • Improved quality of suspected cancer referrals, reducing delays in the system
  • Improved communication to enhance the patient experience and support patients at each stage of their cancer journey.

Following the pilot phase of the project HEE has provided funding to enable free access to all GPs, and other primary and community professionals in all seven cancer alliances in the North of England until September 2019.
