Global IT Outage Update

Every day we care for and treat hundreds of patients from Greater Manchester and beyond who come through our doors.


Today's global IT outage affected many organisations including ours but to put it into context, this outage affected less than a third of our patients.


Our staff worked tirelessly to deliver as many chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments as possible and continue to finalise plans for those we were unable to see today due to issues affecting our supplier.


Thank you for being understanding and bearing with us. Unless our teams contact you, please attend for your appointment as planned.


We continue to work with our supplier to resolve this issue and prioritise our most clinically urgent patients. We apologise for any delays that have occurred as a result of this.


Any further updates will be published on our website and social media channels (Facebook and X/Twitter)

Adrenal gland tumours

The adrenal glands are part of the body’s endocrine system. Cancer in the adrenal glands can affect how the body produces hormones.

The endocrine system in the body produces hormones. Hormones are chemicals that control a number of bodily functions, including growth and development, blood sugar levels, sleep and respiration.

The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system. They produce a number of different hormones including adrenaline and the steroids aldosterone and cortisol.

Adrenal gland tumours are a type of endocrine tumour. Endocrine tumours can affect how your body produces hormones. This means they can have a range of different symptoms.

At The Christie, the endocrinology department treat adrenal gland tumours, as well as other adrenal gland disorders.
