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.

The Christie hosts a total of 95,000 outpatient appointments at the six outpatient locations across the site each year, and for many people this is their first introduction to the hospital. 

All outpatient clinics operate from outpatients A (department 22). Patients can self-check-in at screens placed in the outpatients reception lobby, just off the main corridor. There are staff members and volunteers on hand at all times to help patients check in and find their way around the department. 

Useful information for patients

Outpatients A is located in the centre of The Christie, there are signs in place and staff on hand to guide you there. You will also receive a letter containing this information when you have an outpatients appointment.

If you have an appointment for bloods before your clinic, you need to head to the phlebotomy room (department 35).

If you have any questions about your outpatients appointment, please call our switchboard number on 0161 446 3000.
