Clatterbridge Cancer Centre - Liverpool

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s leading cancer centres providing highly specialist cancer care to a population of 2.4m people across Cheshire, Merseyside and the surrounding areas including the Isle of Man.

Our three specialist cancer centres are in Liverpool's Knowledge Quarter, Wirral and Aintree. We also operate specialist chemotherapy clinics at three other district hospitals in Merseyside and deliver a pioneering Treatment at Home service.

Together, this enables us to provide a comprehensive range of inpatient care, advanced radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other systemic anti-cancer therapies (i.e. medicines) including gene therapies and immunotherapies. We are also the only facility in the UK providing low-energy proton beam therapy to treat rare eye cancers and host the region’s Teenage and Young Adult Unit.

What we do

  • Academic oncology 
  • Acute oncology 
  • Chemotherapy and other systemic anti-cancer treatments (SACT) including gene therapies, immunotherapies and other molecular agents
