Christies NHS Foundation Trust
The Christie is the largest cancer centre in Europe treating more than 40,000 patients a year and an international leader in research. Cancer research in Manchester, most of which is undertaken on The Christie site, has been officially ranked best in the UK, with much of our work having an impact around the world.
The Christie serves a population of 3.2 million across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, but as a national specialist around a quarter of patients are referred from other parts of the country.
The Christie is home to the largest early clinical trials unit in the world, one of the largest radiotherapy departments across the globe and the biggest chemotherapy unit in the UK. The Christie also offers highly specialist surgery for complex and rare cancers and a wide range of support services, not just for patients but their loved ones as well.
The Christie charity raises approximately £14 million each year to fund new developments, research projects, and to provide vital funding for on-going services such as the complementary therapy service, enhanced wig service and cancer information centre. Without charitable donations The Christie would not be able to offer world leading care, treatment and support to their patients.
