The £162M investment in Transforming Cancer Care isn’t just to build our new cancer hospital in Liverpool. It also includes a redesign and refurbishment of our existing Wirral site.
When the new hospital opens in Liverpool in 2020, we estimate 90% of Wirral and West Cheshire patients will continue to be treated at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Wirral.
To ensure patients are confident they will continue to receive the same high standard of care and facilities at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Wirral, we will undertake a significant investment and redevelopment programme on our Wirral site which will start after completion of Clatterbridge Cancer Centre - Liverpool.
All outpatient chemotherapy will be available at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre - Wirral, as well as radiotherapy for common cancers including breast, prostate and lung.
Wirral and West Cheshire patients will only need to travel to Clatterbridge Cancer Centre - Liverpool for inpatient care, more complex treatments or treatment as part of an early-stage clinical trial.
