The Christie NHS Foundation Trust is a hospital based in Manchester that is one of the largest cancer research centres in the UK. The hospital was set up in 1887 when a wealthy inventor left money in his will. Nowadays, over 40,000 patients are treated there every year.
The Christie hospital is constantly evolving to ensure a better future for cancer patients. It is currently in partnership with Manchester City Council to further develop its site rapidly over the next 15 years, and they have recently opened a £28.5 million cancer research centre in Manchester.
