Let's Transform Cancer Care
Cancer is now the leading cause of death in the UK, with the current statistics showing that almost half of us will develop the disease over our lifetime; and for many cancers, the incidence and number of deaths are significantly higher in the North West. We know that there is an urgent need for better tests, earlier diagnosis and more effective treatments for our patients, and your support will help us to face this challenge, transforming cancer care in our region.
With your support, our new hospital in Liverpool alongside our existing network of operating sites could mean that Merseyside and Cheshire will become a world-class centre of excellence in cancer, with patients benefitting from the most advanced cancer treatment, facilities and expertise – along with ground-breaking research and ‘first in human’ clinical trials - as close to home as possible.
We can do all this, but we can’t do it alone. We know that this is a once in a generation chance to make huge progress in the fight against cancer, which is why we are calling on the people who live in our area to get behind it. We want to do the best we can now for patients in the future, so that in years to come, our children and their children will have access to world-leading cancer treatment.
