Strike action between Monday 2 October to Thursday 5 October 2023

Consultants and junior doctors at The Christie will both strike between 7am on Monday 2 October to 7am on Thursday 5 October 2023. Both consultants and junior doctors will still provide emergency care during their strikes.

We are proactively contacting patients with appointments that may be affected by this strike. If you have an appointment at the Trust on any of these dates, please continue to come to The Christie and our other centres as planned unless we contact you to tell you otherwise. There may be longer waits than usual in clinics during this time.

Please do not call to check if your appointment is still going ahead.

Quality assurance

The Christie has a proven track record of high performance. We are also accredited as a Comprehensive Cancer Centre by the Organisation of European Cancer Institutes (OECI).

Our team of experts regularly visits oncology services across the UK and overseas to complete audit and accreditation reviews.

Across Greater Manchester, The Christie delivers oncology care at radiotherapy centres and local hospitals according to consistent standards and quality measures.

We have also developed a ward accreditation methodology known as CODE. The CODE Quality Scheme aims to raise standards and celebrate excellence in care and requires in-patient wards to provide evidence of excellence in the fundamentals of care against 14 evidence-based standards.

We provide advice to clients on:

  • Audits and standard compliance checks
  • Development of internal quality management systems
  • Establishing oncology service accreditation frameworks
  • CODE ward accreditation
