About Pharmacy at The Christie

The Pharmacy department is represented on a range of committees across the Trust.

These committees include Patient Safety; Clinical Research and Effectiveness; Safe Medicines Practice; Medical gases; Nutrition steering group; The Drugs and Therapeutics Committee and the Drugs Management Committee.

The department regularly submits work for presentation at national conferences or for publication. In 2013 the department had 9 posters presented at the National BOPA (British Oncology Pharmacy Association) conference.

Annually the Department hosts a pan-Manchester meeting Pharmaceutical Care for the Cancer Patient. This meeting is open to all pharmacy staff working across the North West (Community Pharmacy, industry, academia, secondary and tertiary care). Each year the focus of the meeting is on a different tumour site.
