Real-Time Digital Medicine at Christie Hospital, Manchester
Haughton Thornley Medical Centres is very sorry to inform you that Gill has sadly died. She and her family wanted you and everybody in the world to know that patients need information and access to their own records so that they can manage their care better and also work with their clinicians to help get a more joined up care especially when they have to be managed by multiple organisations and are dependent on others to do the right thing. Gill always wanted to help others so that we can all benefit too in some small way. Our thoughts are with Gill's family and are thankful for allowing us to ensure her memory lives on for all to see.

, the largest in Europe, treating more than 40,000 patients a year and was the first UK centre to be accredited as a comprehensive cancer centre.
