Global IT outage update - Monday 22 July

The issues affecting the supplier that provides our chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments have now been resolved.

We want to thank our patients for being understanding and bearing with us and we apologise for any delays caused by this. Unless our teams contact you, please attend your appointment as planned. Throughout this incident, we have prioritised the most clinically urgent patients.

The Christie provides care and treatment for hundreds of people every day. The global IT outage last Friday (19 July 2024) affected many organisations but to put it into context, this affected less than a third of our patients.

Our staff have worked tirelessly over the weekend to deliver as many chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments as possible and continue to do so to catch up on rescheduled treatments this week.

Remembrance Day 2022 at The Christie

News story posted 11 November 2022

On Remembrance Day (11 November 2022), we’re remembering the members of the Armed Forces who have died in conflict around the world.

At 11am on Remembrance Day, we’re holding a Remembrance service in the chapel at The Christie. The service is open to patients and staff who are onsite at the hospital, and of any faith or belief.

We are also holding a 2-minutes’ silence near the M&S in the Oak Road entrance of The Christie at 11am on Remembrance Day – anyone onsite at the hospital is welcome to attend.

Throughout the week leading up to Remembrance Day, our staff have also been paying their respects to the Armed Forces. We have put remembrance trees in the chapel at The Christie and in the Oak Road entrance. Patients and staff members have been able to leave messages of remembrance and reflection on these trees.

Children at the day nursery at The Christie have been getting involved in Remembrance Day as well. The children have been learning all about Remembrance Day and the significance of poppies for remembering those who have died in war.

The children have also been decorating their own poppy pictures. These are being displayed on Remembrance Day in the memorial garden at The Christie – this is visible from the glass corridor.

You can find out more about our pledge to support members of the Armed Forces on our Equality, diversity and inclusion webpage.
