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.

Parking at The Christie at Oldham

There is a free car park for radiotherapy patients attending The Christie at Oldham. The car park is located next to The Christie at Oldham building, allowing easy access into the department.

The car park has a secure barrier and code access. The code changes monthly and staff will inform you of the code and any changes in advance.

There is an intercom at the entrance to the car park that links directly to the department reception where staff members are always available to help. There are disabled bays in the car park. If all car parking spaces are full, please use the disabled bays.

If you need assistance getting to and from your car, please let reception know and we can assist you.

Please be aware that the radiotherapy car park has a limited number of spaces. If you have to park on the main hospital car parks at Royal Oldham, you must buy and clearly display a pay and display ticket. If you don't, you could get a penalty fine.

Oncology patients may be entitled to free parking at Pennine Acute NHS Trust Hospital sites dependent on eligibility. Please contact the Macmillan information officer on 0161 918 7745 to receive further information on free parking at Pennine hospitals. Please note this must be arranged in advance.
