Location: UK » North West » M
Sector: Health

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust plans to reduce staff numbers by the equivalent of 213 full-time posts between 2010 and 2015 - around one in ten of all staff currently employed by the Trust.

The breakdown of the cuts, plus the percentage by which each staff category will be reduced, is as follows:

* Medical and dental - 3.6
* Nursing, midwifery and health visitors - 42.85 (9%)
* Scientific, therapeutic and technical - 40.56 (9%)
* Healthcare assistants and clinical support - 52.98 (15%)
* Managers - 4.1
* Admin and estates - 61.49 (10%)
* Others - 7.38

The Christie is one of Europe’s leading cancer centres, treating more than 40,000 patients a year. It is based in Manchester and serves a population of 3.2 million across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, but as a national specialist around 26 percent of its patients are referred from other parts of the country.
