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.

Collaboration & commissioning opportunities

Cancer Vanguard

CPCR are currently contributing to three workstreams of the Greater Manchester Cancer Vanguard, an innovative initiative to transform cancer care.

  • Cancer prevention, screening and early detection: creating a citizen-led social movement focused on cancer prevention so that members of the public can spread prevention messages throughout their communities and support people to make and maintain healthy behaviour choices. To find out more about becoming a cancer champion, click here.
  • Cancer education: the development of an e-Learning resource for GPs to help doctors identify potential cancer symptoms and make the referral system more efficient. The platform is currently being piloted in Manchester and London before it is rolled out more widely in the summer of 2017.
  • Living with and beyond cancer and supportive care: the development of a decision aid/package that will support advanced cancer patients in making decisions about their further treatment based on a shared understanding between professionals, patients and their families of the patient's goals for their own care. The first prototype of the decision aid is currently being piloted with three cancer groups at The Christie.
