We need your help: a new Christie cancer centre coming to East Cheshire
20 March 2019

The Christie charity is launching a major new fundraising appeal to raise £23 million to build a state of the art new cancer centre in the heart of East Cheshire.

The new Christie Cancer Centre will be built in the grounds of Macclesfield District General Hospital, providing Christie cancer care closer to home for more than 1,500 new patients a year.

The new centre will transform cancer care in East Cheshire, bringing together essential cancer services into one purpose-built unit delivering local specialist access to radiotherapy, chemotherapy, holistic support and information services, outpatient care, palliative care - and for the first time, early phase clinical trials, meaning patients in East Cheshire will be among the first in the country to access new treatments as they become available.
