The psycho-oncology service accepts referrals from within The Christie. You can ask any of the nurses, doctors or other staff involved in your care to fill in a referral form for you.
The secretarial office is open from 8.00am - 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
If the faxed referral is urgent, please also telephone on 0161 446 3681 to confirm that it has been received and is prioritised.
For urgent referrals/enquiries, you can contact us on bleep 12739.
For out of hours psychiatric emergencies The Christie doctor should telephone the on-call psychiatry SpR at Wythenshawe Hospital. You need to specify if the patient is under 65 years (general adult psychiatry SpR) or aged 65 or over (old age psychiatry SpR).
If you are uncertain what type of help is needed, you are welcome to speak to a member of the team to discuss a possible referral (Tel: 0161 446 3681).
