Our strategies and plans

Our Five-Year Strategic Plan 2021-2025

We've achieved a lot over the last five years. The opening of Clatterbridge Cancer Centre - Liverpool in June 2020 was the culmination of the ambitions we set ourselves for expanding and transforming services with a major new specialist cancer hospital in the heart of Liverpool, and by further embedding our unique networked model of care.

Now it's time to look ahead to the next five years with a new statement of our mission for 2021-2025 and a strategic plan that sets out how we will achieve it.

You can read the full and summary versions of our strategic plan, along with a short briefing that includes some of the key highlights.
