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.

Getting your free flu jab as a cancer patient

Are you a Christie patient undergoing cancer treatment? You can get a free flu vaccine to protect you from the risk of flu.

People at high risk from COVID-19 are also those most at risk from flu. We are urging everyone who is eligible to take up the free flu vaccine this winter.

Please arrange to have a flu vaccine with your GP to reduce your risk from flu this winter. Members of your household can also have a free flu vaccine, as this will further reduce your risk.

If you are on a clinical trial, please speak to your research team or oncologist before having the flu vaccine.
