Our podcast (born in July 2021) was created to share the work going on with our wider Greater Manchester Cancer workforce, giving insight into the roles that the many different fantastic people within this have. Our host, presenter Steve Bland (from the BBC Podcast You, Me and the Big C) focuses on a different topic for each episode. So far, we have covered the impact of Covid-19 upon cancer services, progress of the NHS-Galleri Trial, and success of the HPV vaccine and what this means for other cancer types. A number of our service users have contributed to the podcast and we would like to thank them for sharing their experiences.
For World Cancer Day on 4th February this year, we produced 2 episodes:
Episode 1: The next 12 months in cancer research
Steve Bland looks ahead to the next 12 months in cancer research with Professor Rob Bristow, director of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre. They discuss spatial technologies, repurposing drugs and the importance of inclusion in clinical trials.
Episode 2: Closing the care gap in Greater Manchester
Steve looks ahead to the next 12 months in Greater Manchester and explores the ground-breaking projects designed to transform patient pathways, in the company of Lisa Galligan-Dawson, Performance Director at GM Cancer. Steve also speaks to Kirsty Rowlinson-Groves from Prehab4Cancer to find out what drives her to make a difference.
