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 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.

During your care, you may be approached about participating in research, both in clinical trials and research studies.
