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)

Lymphoma research Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement group

Could you help shape the future of research into lymphoma? If you’re a lymphoma patient or you care for someone who is, your experiences could help improve patient outcomes.

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and The University of Manchester are creating a new lymphoma Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) Group. The group will be a unique space for lymphoma patients and their carers to work together to co-produce research.

By involving patients in our research, we can be sure we’re providing a service that meets the needs of our patients. And by listening to what people who come to The Christie think about what we do, we understand what is important to our patients.

The University of Manchester

You will help to prioritise research, offer advice as a member of a project steering group, comment on and/or develop research materials and participate in interviews with research participants.

  • You will work alongside a dedicated group of clinicians, academic researches and health professionals such as specialist and research nurses.
  • The group has an interest in research into screening, monitoring and diagnosing the late effects of treatment for lymphoma, including cardiovascular (heart and circulatory) disease and second cancers.
  • Your commitments can be tailored to suit your interests, experiences, skills and availability.

If you are interested in joining the lymphoma research PPIE group, please contact Dr. Tania Seale tania.seale@manchester.ac.uk for an informal chat or receive a copy of the role description.
