Major new cancer centre proposed for Merseyside and Cheshire
Last Updated 1st August 2014
The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust (CCC) has launched a public consultation on proposals for Transforming Cancer Care in Merseyside and Cheshire.
It’s a once-in-a-generation opportunity to expand and improve cancer services for people from Merseyside, Cheshire and surrounding areas. CCC wants to achieve this by developing a new specialist cancer hospital in the heart of Liverpool, on the same site as the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the University of Liverpool and other key partners.
Outpatient services at CCC’s Wirral and Aintree sites would be retained, along with the services CCC provides in hospitals across Merseyside and Cheshire. Inpatient services and the most complex care would move to the new hospital. (Most cancer patients are seen and treated as outpatients.)
The public consultation on the proposals runs from 28th July 2014 to 19th October 2014. Consultation events will be taking place across Merseyside and Cheshire between now and 19th October so people can find out more and details can be found on the consultation
