Patient booklets

The Christie produces a range of patient information that covers various aspects of cancer and cancer treatments.

Booklets are free to patients coming to The Christie and are available from the cancer information centre (department 3). The centre offers a confidential service for anyone affected by cancer. Please call in or contact us by telephone on 0161 446 8100.

We also offer a number of chemotherapy information sheets about individual chemotherapy treatments.

We want you to be as comfortable as possible while you are being treated at The Christie. This booklet sets out to tell you in general what to expect. It cannot cover everything you may want to know, so if there is anything that worries you, please ask. 

The Wig Fitting Service

You are entitled to a wig if your treatment causes hair loss. Your nurse, doctor or ward receptionist will give you a wig prescription form. Please fill in the form and give it to the salon staff when you come for your appointment.
