Services at The Christie

The Christie is one of Europe's leading cancer centres, treating over 60,000 patients a year. We have a history of over 100 years of leading cancer care.

Based in Manchester, we provide a networked service to a population of 3.2 million across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, delivering care as close to patients’ homes as possible. As a national specialist centre, around a quarter of our patients come to us from across the UK.

Blood room

The blood room (phlebotomy) is where patients come for blood tests. This is in department 35 (previously department 42). Opening hours are from 8am to 5pm.


Brachytherapy is the oldest form of radiotherapy, but also one of the least known. On these pages we hope to inform you about brachytherapy, dispel some myths and explain specific types of brachytherapy available at The Christie.
