Global IT Outage Update

Every day we care for and treat hundreds of patients from Greater Manchester and beyond who come through our doors.


Today's global IT outage affected many organisations including ours but to put it into context, this outage affected less than a third of our patients.


Our staff worked tirelessly to deliver as many chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments as possible and continue to finalise plans for those we were unable to see today due to issues affecting our supplier.


Thank you for being understanding and bearing with us. Unless our teams contact you, please attend for your appointment as planned.


We continue to work with our supplier to resolve this issue and prioritise our most clinically urgent patients. We apologise for any delays that have occurred as a result of this.


Any further updates will be published on our website and social media channels (Facebook and X/Twitter)

What complementary therapy do

Diagnosis and subsequent treatment can bring on many emotions and symptoms including stress, mild to moderate depression, fear, worry and anxiety induced nausea. As an integrated part of the rehabilitation unit we offer a range of therapies, all free of charge, which help to alleviate these emotions and symptoms. Every year we treat more and more patients and their carers, as the value of what we do becomes more widely known.

The therapies we provide to patients and carers include massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture/acupressure, reflexology, therapeutic touch, hypnotherapy, creative visualisation, smoking cessation and alcohol advice. The service is provided by 30 therapists working in a part-time self-employed basis covering Monday to Friday and working throughout the hospital.
