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.

Keeping up to date

The library has three ways to help you stay up to date: receive KnowledgeShare as soon as new information is published; electronic tables of contents (ETOCs) can be emailed to you as soon as your favourite journals publish a new issue; request update searches to receive new articles related to your areas of interest monthly.


KnowledgeShare is a service that will send you high level evidence, as it is published, from a variety of sources including The King's FundNICE, professional societies and royal colleges

To set up KnowledgeShare alerts you can contact the library so that we can set you up and fine-tune what you are interested in. 

Once you are set up on KnowledgeShare you can log in yourself with an OpenAthens username and password and change your preferences yourself, or ask the library to do so for you. 

Update searches

The library can search a variety of databases including MedlineCINAHL and Embase for journal articles related to your information needs. We can set up alerts for these searches so that you know what is being published on a monthly basis.

Email us the topic that you are interested in and state that you would like to receive updates to the search. For more information about our literature searching service please visit the request a literature search page.

Electronic tables of contents (ETOCs)

Through the library you have access to thousands of journals online. If you tell what journals you are interested in we can email the table of contents of new issues, as soon as they are published.
