Tania is a great advocate for people living with and beyond cancer in Tower Hamlets, East London. As a GP facilitator, her role focuses on improving other GPs’ understanding of cancer services and encouraging them to challenge and reflect on their own practices – from screening right through to survivorship. For example, she led a drive for GPs to look at how they do bowel screening for colon cancer, which resulted in an enhanced service across the borough.
Thanks to the collaborative nature of her role, Tania has helped to bring a number of innovative services and projects to life. Her vision and current focus is making sure that cancer is viewed and treated as a long-term condition in a primary care setting, alongside other chronic conditions such as diabetes.
