Major new cancer centre proposed for Merseyside and Cheshire
We want to take ACTION ON CANCER and we hope that you do too!
Your local NHS is taking action by investing in quality cancer services.
And we have big ambitions to make them even better.
We want to celebrate the positive things that are happening across Merseyside and Cheshire to prevent, treat and cure cancer.
However, cancer is still the biggest cause of death in Merseyside and Cheshire and more people die in our region from cancer than anywhere else in England. That's why it's so important that we take ACTION ON CANCER.
Creating world class cancer services for our region
An independent review of how cancer services are organised across our region showed that big benefits could be gained for patients and their families by expanding the services provided by The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust.
Proposals to develop a comprehensive cancer centre for Merseyside and Cheshire would see Clatterbridge Cancer Centre services expanded further with the building of a new centre next to the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
Inpatient services will move from Wirral to the Liverpool site and additional outpatient services will also be provided.
