The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, has celebrated the first anniversary of the opening of The Christie at Oldham. It is the first stage of a 10-year vision to bring cancer treatment closer to the community.
Said to be the first network of its kind in the UK, it will be followed by the opening of The Christie at Salford radiotherapy centre later this year.
Philips Healthcare is providing Brilliance Big Bore CT simulators for both radiotherapy centres and the main Christie radiotherapy department, along with AcQSim clinical virtual simulation systems.
