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.

Tameside Macmillan Unit

Patients can receive treatment at the Tameside Macmillan Unit at Tameside Hospital.

At the unit, we deliver selected systemic anti-cancer therapy (SACT) treatments to Christie patients living in or near the Ashton area on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday each week. Patients can also have their bloods taken on these days by appointment only.

The bloods closer to home local blood test service at The Christie lets patients book a blood test at a location that's near where they live. You can book your local blood test using the system below on our bloods closer to home page.

Cancer treatment at the Tameside Macmillan Unit is delivered by Christie SACT nurses.
