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.

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.
