The Christie NHS Foundation Trust

Based in Manchester, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust specialises in the treatment of cancer providing services across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, with approximately a quarter of referrals coming from outside the area.

The trust houses one of the world’s largest radiotherapy departments, the UK’s largest chemotherapy unit and provides specialist surgery and treatment for complex and rare cancers. An international leader in its field, the trust supports clinical trials and ground-breaking research over the full range of adult and teenage cancers. The trust also setup the Christie School of Oncology to support undergraduates and medical professionals to advance their knowledge in this field.
