Learn with AMAGAZINE the vital role Christie Hospital Charity plays in the Manchester community
With a worldwide reputation for trailblazing treatments in the fight against cancer, The Christie Hospital is long considered a source of pride and hope in Manchester. It’s one of Europe’s best and most comprehensive cancer hospitals, treating more than 40,000 patients per year from its elite facilities in Withington. NHS funded, they have saved thousands of lives since the 1930s.
We at AMAGAZINE are committed to helping The Christie continue its pioneering work. We’re pledging to donate £4000 over the next few years as the hospital continues to grow – and they are expanding fast. The Paterson Building, destroyed in 2017 in a devastating fire, will be replaced with a new world-class centre on Wilmslow Road. The Christie will also open a new £26m hospital in Macclesfield.
As the hospital develops, we aim to build a strong partnership with The Christie Charity which provides enhanced services ‘over and above’ what the NHS funds. We’ve spent time with the charity over the last few months learning first hand the incredible impact donations have on the hospital and its patients. Their amazing fundraising schemes have helped support services such as art rooms, wig fitting and complementary therapy. The Christie Charity is also raising money for major developments such as a vital Radiology and 4D CT scanner. This unbelievable technology will bring clearer imaging and pioneering surgeries to The Christie.
