Global IT outage update - Monday 22 July

The issues affecting the supplier that provides our chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments have now been resolved.

We want to thank our patients for being understanding and bearing with us and we apologise for any delays caused by this. Unless our teams contact you, please attend your appointment as planned. Throughout this incident, we have prioritised the most clinically urgent patients.

The Christie provides care and treatment for hundreds of people every day. The global IT outage last Friday (19 July 2024) affected many organisations but to put it into context, this affected less than a third of our patients.

Our staff have worked tirelessly over the weekend to deliver as many chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments as possible and continue to do so to catch up on rescheduled treatments this week.

The sarcoma service team

The Christie sarcoma team provides national and internationally recognised expertise in radiotherapy, systemic anti-cancer treatments (including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and targeted agents) and certain types of surgery including plastic or reconstructive surgery to all areas of the body.

We also work with a number of other teams across The Christie - you can see some of these here.

Proton beam therapy

Some patients who have sarcoma are treated with proton beam therapy, depending on where the tumour is. If you are referred for proton beam therapy, this will be discussed with you during your clinic consultation.
