Current developments and what's coming soon

Keep up-to-date with developments at The Christie and see if any of our works will affect your journey to us.

Works update: 3 May 2024

Installation of the internal doors, equipment and furniture is ongoing, and plumbing and ventilation equipment is also being installed.

Work inside the existing hospital has started in areas which link to the extension to form new corridor and internal entrances to the lift and stair lobbies.

The Highways Authority has granted permission to close a small section of pavement in front of the site in mid-May. This allows the blue site hoarding to be removed and the external landscaping to commence. Further updates will be issued closer to the work taking place.

Other developments

Over the coming weeks, you may notice ground investigations and surveys along the Wilmslow Road-side of The Christie. These are associated with the planned Advanced Scanning and Imaging Facility for which planning permission was granted last year.

Wilmslow Road redevelopment to form replacement advanced scanning and imaging facility 

Planning permission was granted by Manchester City Council in December 2023. We will update further regarding the timeline for this project in due course. 

Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) Project

The Christie “CEF Project” is a refresh of the way in which the Trust produces enough power to run the site. The project will significantly reduce the Trust’s future energy costs and CO2 emissions and will act as the first stage of its journey to reduce the carbon footprint of The Christie in line with Manchester City Council’s commitment for Manchester to be carbon neutral by 2038.

The proposed works have been carefully developed to have a limited visual impact to the hospital site externally. The majority of the improvement works will be contained within the existing buildings and will have no visible impact to neighbouring properties.

The project will require a new chimney which will be 3 metres lower and significantly narrower than the existing brick chimney. The chimney would be the only visible change noticeable on the hospital site. The height and proximity of the existing hospital buildings and large tree cover in surrounding the site will limit any visual impact.

The Trust will be applying for Planning Permission from Manchester City Council for the works.

The CEF Energy Project will introduce a range of energy conservation measures (ECMs) which will be deployed across The Christie hospital site. These ECMs will reduce the thermal consumption of the hospital estate by 15% and the electrical consumption by 16% resulting in an initial reduction in carbon emissions of 1,356 tonnes per annum.
