Major fundraising appeal for new cancer treatment centre
A new state-of-the-art cancer centre, which will be able to treat up to 4,000 people a year, is coming to Macclesfield.
The Christie charity has launched a major new fundraising appeal to raise £23m for a new centre at the district general hospital on Victoria Road. It will provide Christie cancer care closer to home for more than 1,500 new patients a year in a purpose-built unit, delivering local specialist access to radiotherapy, chemotherapy, holistic support and information services, outpatient care, palliative care.
For the first time, early phase clinical trials will be offered, meaning patients in east Cheshire will be among the first in the country to access new treatments as they become available.
