Christie Patients

Christie Patients

We are proud to host clinics for Christie patients

Launched in 2018, the clinics offer Christie patients the opportunity to receive the same chemotherapy, immunotherapy and hormonal treatments and support that they would have at The Christie’s Withington site in Manchester but without the journey and the exhaustion this can bring.

These clinics operate every Friday from 8am to 4pm. They have seven treatment chairs which means their team of specialist nurses can deliver treatments to seven patients at a time. The clinic treats all types of cancer and sees around 18 patients each day, the majority of which come from mid and south Cheshire.

A Christie ‘Bloods Closer to Home’ service also operates at the Hospice every Wednesday.

Fundraising

How your donations help

Christie nurses and patients love coming to St Luke’s because of its calm and relaxed atmosphere. As the groups are small, patients and nurses are able to build a rapport with each other. There are no waiting times, there’s free parking and The Christie’s clinics have all the facilities they need at St Luke’s.

Christie patients are referred to St Luke’s via their clinical team or they can self-refer and have their eligibility checked. Having the link between The Christie and St Luke’s means patients can also access other services offered by the Hospice, including complementary therapies, symptom control and counselling meaning that patients get an all round approach to their treatment and care.
