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.

Art at The Christie

The team

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

Where we are

We are based in Department 12 which is 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
