Paterson building redevelopment
We are holding a public drop-in session for the Paterson building consultation on Thursday 10 January, 2.00pm – 8.00pm at Oak Road Main Entrance, The Christie, Withington.
The consultation will then be open for two weeks. For further information, please visit our dedicated website www.PatersonSPFConsultation.co.uk.
Wilmslow Road work
As part of the Paterson site project, a small fenced compound is to be formed around the existing raised garden beds, located adjacent the Main Hospital Holt entrance on Wilmslow Road.
This is to facilitate the construction of the proposed temporary fire escape route from our Pathology department.
Wilmslow Road digging
As part of the development of the Paterson site, small trial holes will be dug inside and outside the fencing around the building. This is to expose below ground engineering services and will be carried out during normal working hours.
Removal of equipment from the Paterson building
We will remove small items of equipment, fixtures & fittings from the internal areas within the Paterson building. These items will be taken away via skips and waste containers. This work continues throughout January.
Removal of trees from Paterson site
The remaining trees along the front of the fire-damaged Paterson building will be removed. This activity is ongoing and plays an important part in the necessary preparation works for the proposed demolition to take place.
As part of this, we will also be digging a hole behind the fencing line. This will take place during working hours.
We are committed to replanting trees at the Withington site. The Christie’s Tree Planting Plan is available to view on our Paterson page.
Oak Road resurfacing
Resurfacing of Oak Road including footpaths and walkways will continue throughout the month. We have almost completed the resurfacing of the hospital-side footpath. Once this is reopened, we will start work on the residents-side footpath. This work will start from the Wilmslow Road end of Oak Road and progress down towards Palatine Road.
After this, Oak Road will be resurfaced in two separate sections. Diversions will be in place during this time.

Central phlebotomy project
As of 5 November, we started the central phlebotomy project. For the duration of the project, the two parking bays to the south of The Christie Private Care will be used to house the skip. Deliveries will also take place for the duration of the five month project and these will be before 8am and after 6pm. This means any deliveries should have a limited impact on patients.
During the construction period access to the cycle compound, The Christie Clinic, The Christie, the cryogenics and the cold store will remain unaffected.
