It will transform cancer care, delivering local specialist access to chemotherapy, holistic support and information services, outpatient care, palliative care, counselling and complementary therapy and a wider range of clinical trials than at present.
The £26 million development is equipped with state-of-the-art radiotherapy treatment machines, a CT scanner and 18 treatment chairs. It will provide 46,000 patient appointments and visits each year and is the third in a network of local Christie radiotherapy centres where patients can access Christie treatment closer to home. The other centres are in Oldham and Salford.
It's exciting to see the completion of our new cancer centre but there's still more we can do to support cancer patients as they go through their treatment. The Christie charity provides enhanced services over and above what the NHS funds. At Macclesfield this will include complementary therapy, refreshments for patients, and other supportive services.
