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.

Art at The Christie

The team

Pat Mountford is the Artist in Residence and volunteers support the class.

Where we are

The new art room and relaxation room at The Christie is now open in department 12 on the main corridor.

What we do

A relaxed space which supports patients and carers by helping them to discover their creativity at a time when they may be feeling at their most vulnerable. A staff art group also runs as part of The Christie's commitment to staff support.

There are several drop in sessions each week for patients and their carers. No previous arts experience necessary - the sessions are informal, fun, and relaxing.

A wide range of activities are available, including working with professional artists to bring out your natural creativity.

Regular sessions are:

  • Monday 1.30 - 3.30pm
  • Wednesday 1.30 - 3.30pm
  • Thursday 10.30 - 3.30pm

The art room, classes and redevelopment of the art room are funded by The Christie Charity.
