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.

Research and innovation

Delivering world-class cancer research is at the heart of what we do at The Christie. Developing new treatments to improve outcomes for patients is one of our key priorities. 

We lead research into innovative techniques such as using DNA to personalise treatment and to help people’s immune systems fight cancer. There are more than 650 clinical research studies and trials running here at any given time.

We have internationally recognised expertise in cancer research. Our research makes a difference for people living with cancer and their friends and families.

Our cancer research expertise at The Christie includes:

  • running research studies and trials across all types of cancer 
  • delivering the highest quality clinical trials
