The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s leading cancer centres, providing high quality care to the population of Merseyside and Cheshire and beyond.

Consistently rated one of the best-performing hospitals in the country, we deliver compassionate and effective, specialist care and in February 2017 were rated as ‘Outstanding’ by The Care Quality Commission.

We provide a comprehensive range of inpatient care, advanced radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other systemic anti-cancer therapies including gene therapies and immunotherapies for the treatment of solid tumours and blood cancers. We are also the only facility in the UK providing low-energy proton beam therapy to treat rare eye cancers.

We are currently embarking on an £162 million investment in facilities including a new cancer hospital in the heart of Liverpool due to open in 2020. Based on the same thriving research and healthcare campus as the University of Liverpool and Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the new hospital will ensure every patient receives truly outstanding care and can access the most advanced treatments and clinical trials for generations to come.
