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.

Private options for colorectal and peritoneal patients

We offer a comprehensive service for private patients through The Christie Private Care, the bespoke private facility in the grounds of The Christie hospital.

If you are looking for a private referral, please visit The Christie Private Care website for more information.

Choosing a surgeon

Private patients from the UK or abroad can choose to see a colorectal surgeon at The Christie colorectal and peritoneal oncology centre. Please see our consultant's profiles by clicking one of the links below:

Making a referral

Doctors making private referrals can write us a letter outlining the diagnosis, treatment to date and the reason for referral. We ask that all supporting information such as scan reports, operation notes, clinic notes, histopathology reports and colonoscopy reports be sent to us with this letter.

When we receive your referral letter we'll send a letter acknowledging receipt. Our administrative team will then collect all the relevant information required for us to give an opinion.

We are happy to provide you with a second opinion if you need reassurance that the advice you have already received is appropriate for your needs.
