A New Cancer Centre
Investing in the Future of Merseyside and Cheshire

How Will Extending and Moving some Services Make Things Better?

It follows that if the people of Merseyside and Cheshire suffer the biggest burden of cancer in England, then they should have access to the best cancer services in England.

Of course, extending and moving some of The Clatterbridge Centre’s services from their current location in Wirral to a new comprehensive cancer centre in Liverpool will not lift the cancer burden on its own; high quality treatment must be delivered alongside efforts to prevent cancer and to detect cancer earlier.

But senior doctors and clinical advisors are already in strong agreement that the expansion is the single biggest step the region can take to ensure cancer services in Merseyside and Cheshire stand comparison with the best in England. The shift will bring about some very important benefits for all cancer patients, not just those living north of the Mersey, but Wirral and Western Cheshire patients too.
