About The Christie at Oldham

The Christie at Oldham was the first in a unique network of Christie radiotherapy centres, where patients can access first class radiotherapy, closer to home. The Christie at Oldham opened its door in 2010, housing two state of the art Elekta linear accelerators and a Philips CT scanner to plan and deliver highly complex radiotherapy treatment to approximately 80-120 patients a day.

The centre is also home to some Christie outpatient clinics.

Patients we treat at The Christie at Oldham

Patients with various types of cancers can attend The Christie at Oldham for their radiotherapy treatment where there is a dedicated team of radiographers, medical and support teams to ensure expert delivery of treatment. The centre uses the same equipment, clinical protocols and management structure as The Christie in Withington.

We treat patients from the local area at this centre. If it's closer to access this centre from your home, please enquire from your clinician if your radiotherapy can be delivered at Oldham. However, some patients with more rare and complex cancers will still need to be treated at our main Withington site in south Manchester.
