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.

Non-medical education

Radiology and complementary therapy can offer placements to a limited numbers of learners. Learners allocated to learning environments can regularly observe the patient pathway by following a ‘spoke’ to other departments from their ‘hub’ placement and we encourage inter-professional learning.

We hold a number of education events in the School of Oncology and we encourage active participation in these.

Learners and practice educators are also supported by University Link Lecturers (ULL) liaising closely with the Practice Education Team and practice education leads in each learning environment. Learners should expect to work alongside their assessor and supervisors on a 24/7 basis to meet their learning objectives, outcomes and proficiencies whilst experiencing the full range of working practices.
