COVID-19 update

The wig room is now able to offer virtual consultations and wigs by post.

To access this service, please contact the cancer information centre by phone or email.

The wig fitting service

You are entitled to a wig if your treatment causes you hair loss. You must obtain a wig voucher before attending the wig service. You can obtain your free wig voucher from the cancer information centres at:

  • The Christie main hospital site, Manchester (located on the glass corridor - Department 7).
  • The Christie at Oldham site
  • The Christie at Salford site

You will need your hospital number, name and address. You do not need to make an appointment for this.

Your voucher allows you to choose, free of charge, one wig from a specific range of wigs. This service includes consultation, fitting and styling.

If you wish to choose a wig from a more expensive range, you can use your Christie voucher and pay the extra amount on top to cover the increased cost.

You can arrange an appointment to see one of our specialists from Dimples in our wig room at The Christie or visit one of our salons listed below. Please remember that you need your wig voucher first as our specialist cannot see you without a voucher. If these locations or opening hours are unsuitable for you, or perhaps you are unable to attend due to your health, then please contact Dimples head office for further advice.
