This page is about the new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre which has being built next to the new Liverpool Royal Hospital. It will provide highly specialist cancer care.

Networked cancer services

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust has developed a major new 11-floor specialist cancer hospital, next to the new Royal on the Liverpool Health Campus, as part of its vision for Transforming Cancer Care.

The new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, next to the new Royal, will provide highly-specialist cancer care such as:

  • Chemotherapy and pioneering anti-cancer drug therapies including those from Linda McCartney Centre
  • Radiotherapy
  • Blood cancer services and bone marrow transplant
  • Inpatients, outpatients and daycase treatment
  • Urgent care for people with cancer
  • Specialist cancer therapies & support

Construction began in 2016 and the new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre - Liverpool (CCC-L) opened on Saturday 27 June, first with the transfer of in-patients from the Wirral site and then outpatient and day case activity began from Monday 29 June.

CCC-L will deliver a wide range of highly-specialist services including pioneering chemotherapy, immunotherapy, gene therapy and radiotherapy. It has state-of-the-art facilities for bone marrow transplant, diagnostics and imaging, outpatients, day case treatments, a Teenage & Young Adult Unit, clinical therapies, and a wide range of cancer information and support.

By increasing capacity for cancer care, it will ensure the NHS in Cheshire and Merseyside is well placed to resume normal clinical activity for cancer care and will transform care for patients.

The new centre will be supported by teams based at the Royal, who have plans in place to ensure that patients receive a consistent level of care.

The second phase of the opening of CCC-L will include integrating and enhancing services for haemato-oncology patients.

This will include transferring the haemato-oncology wards from the Royal Liverpool University Hospital site into CCC-L. We aim for this to happen in September 2020.

The new 11 storey hospital is adjacent to the Royal and work is now underway to create a physical link between the two buildings. Below you will find a guide to the new centre, including floor plans.
