The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, situated in South Manchester, is the largest cancer treatment centre of its kind in Europe, and an international leader in cancer research and development. The Christie provides a radiotherapy service to a population in excess of 3 million in the Greater Manchester and Cheshire area. In addition to the Withington site there are two operational radiotherapy satellite centres located in Oldham and Salford. These facilities provide local access to treatments for cancer patients. The centre at Salford also provides a stereotactic radiosurgery service. The Christie radiotherapy network has a total of 14 linear accelerators across the three sites. The Christie team is in the process of delivering the National Proton Beam Therapy programme in conjunction with UCLH. Other exciting developments include participating in the international MR linac consortium with The Christie set to be one of the first hospitals in the UK to offer MRI-guided radiotherapy.
