Global IT Outage Update

Every day we care for and treat hundreds of patients from Greater Manchester and beyond who come through our doors.


Today's global IT outage affected many organisations including ours but to put it into context, this outage affected less than a third of our patients.


Our staff worked tirelessly to deliver as many chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments as possible and continue to finalise plans for those we were unable to see today due to issues affecting our supplier.


Thank you for being understanding and bearing with us. Unless our teams contact you, please attend for your appointment as planned.


We continue to work with our supplier to resolve this issue and prioritise our most clinically urgent patients. We apologise for any delays that have occurred as a result of this.


Any further updates will be published on our website and social media channels (Facebook and X/Twitter)

Ward 11 team

The ward 11 team are the winners of The Christie’s You Made a Difference Award for December 2023. The following comments were made about the team in the December nominations.

The judges picked the ward 11 team out as very deserving winners and said that the comments made about them showed how they represented The Christie values and behaviours.

“Ward 11 is a 28-bed inpatient ward caring for patients who are admitted for curative treatment, palliation, systemic anti-cancer treatment, radiotherapy, treatment side effects and end of life care. We are a team made up of nurses, healthcare assistants and support staff who provide 24-hour care to patients and their loved ones.

“The ward 11 staff demonstrate fantastic attitude and positive attitude. Their compassion is noteworthy, with patients’ relatives and other staff members. I am regularly asked by external staff if they can come and pick up work on the ward as it is such a supportive environment. Former patients often return to see staff and to give thanks.

We regularly receive thank you cards from patients and relatives. They are a proactive team who embrace change because they constantly strive to deliver exceptional care.

Alice Caporn, ward manager

“The team is relatively new, with the majority of the team having worked here less than a year. Our last intake of staff nurses were all year 3 students on the ward and chose to work here once qualified, demonstrating the wards commitment to a supportive, collaborative, and compassionate environment.”

  - Alice Caporn, ward manager

“Supported me during the most difficult time of my life. Sorted things for me when my daughter passed away. Amazing caring ladies. True angels. Thank you.”

“The care we were shown was amazing. The nurses who looked after Natalie were true angels. Cannot remember everyone's name. All staff were amazing.”

  - Janet Walker, patient relative
