GatewayC is a free online cancer education programme for healthcare professionals across England.

The education has been developed by clinical and educational experts to assist primary care professionals to detect cancer in primary care. It supports the NHS agenda of improving early cancer diagnosis, increasing cancer survival, and enhancing patient experience.

The education portfolio

The GatewayC courses are centred around short videos – these are all based on true patient consultations. They include filmed consultations and a range of high-quality activities, intended to consolidate the learning.

The aims of GatewayC

GatewayC is designed to improve cancer outcomes by facilitating earlier diagnosis and improving patient experience. The courses can:

  • Increase professionals’ confidence in decision-making, regarding when to and when not to refer a patient
  • Improve the quality of suspected cancer referrals, reducing delays in the system
  • Improve communication to enhance the patient experience and support patients at each stage of their cancer journey

The programme is funded and hosted by The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.
