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.

Penile cancer support group

Our penile cancer support group offers support to penile cancer patients. If you're a penile cancer patient, this support group will be suitable for you - whether you’ve just been diagnosed with penile cancer, are currently having treatment, or are adjusting to life after penile cancer treatment.

The penile cancer support group gives men that have been diagnosed with penile cancer the opportunity to share experiences and meet and support others who have been affected by penile cancer. We also welcome partners and carers.

The penile cancer support group is held at the Maggie’s Centre Manchester, behind The Christie. It will be supported by the men’s cancer charity, Orchid and The Christie penile cancer specialist team.

The upcoming dates for the penile cancer support group are:

  • Wednesday 7 June 2023, 3 to 4.30pm
  • Wednesday 2 August 2023, 3 to 4.30pm
  • Wednesday 4 October 2023, 3 to 4.30pm
  • Wednesday 6 December 2023, 3 to 4.30pm
