Our Five Year Strategic Plan 2021-2025 sets out our vision for further developing cancer care for the communities we serve. 

In June 2020, we opened our major new specialist hospital Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Liverpool (CCC-Liverpool). The 11-storey building – next to Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the University of Liverpool – has enabled us to transform cancer care for the people of Cheshire and Merseyside. 

Our Five Year Strategic Plan 2021-2025 builds on this so we can deliver the greatest possible benefits for patient outcomes and experience.
