THE CHARITY BEHIND THE GAMES
The Christie and The Christie Charity
The Christie has been pioneering cancer research breakthroughs for over 100 years and is the largest cancer centre in Europe. Treating more than 44,000 patients per year from across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, The Christie was the first UK centre to be officially accredited as a comprehensive cancer centre. As a national specialist for some rare and hard to treat cancers, 26% of our patients are referred here from hospitals across the UK.
‘We Care, We Discover, We Teach’ are the Christie Principles
CareFirst-class treatment and care for cancer patients.
DiscoverOffering the latest innovative treatments for patients via our cancer research programmes and clinical trials. The Christie Clinical Trials Unit is the biggest in the world for early phase trials
TeachTraining the oncologists of the future through The Christie School of Oncology, the only one of its kind in the UK.
The Christe was first established in 1901 through generous donations and fundraising has continued to support vital development for more than a century. Our charity helps to pay for cancer research, new facilities, high-tech equipment and extra patient services - helping cancer patients both cope with and survive cancer.
The Christie Charity exists to raise funds for all those extra special services that help patients to cope with the impact of cancer on their daily lives. Voluntary donations also contribute towards our cancer research programmes, capital building projects and the purchase of state of the art medical equipment. Patients are at the heart of everything we do and that’s why The Christie Charity is committed to continually improving the patient experience. Thanks to charitable support, we are able to provide a range of enhanced services in superb facilities over and above that which can be provided from NHS funding. Furthermore, this helps us to attract world-class clinicians and scientists who wish to work at The Christie for the benefit of all our patients.
