(For treatment side effects and complications only)
We are one of the largest cancer centres in the UK – treating 26,000 patients each year.
However we recognise that we need to make access to our services and expert staff as easy as possible for our patients. As such, our consultants deliver clinics at various sites close to patients’ homes, in the surrounding general hospitals of Merseyside, Cheshire and the Isle of Man.
Patients are generally referred to us from the hospital where they are receiving, or have received, treatment. Regular appointments with the consultant throughout the duration of the treatment and immediately afterwards are then kept at the same local location.
The specialist nursing teams from the Delamere Day Case Unit also deliver outpatient chemotherapy treatments to our patients at seven other clinics within local hospitals across the region:
The Linda McCartney Centre is based at The Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
Nursing teams from The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre provide outpatient chemotherapy treatments for breast and bowel cancer patients in the chemotherapy suite, on the second floor of the state of the art patient friendly Linda McCartney Centre.
Nursing teams from The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre deliver chemotherapy treatments for breast, bowel, lung and prostate cancer patients in the Haematology/ Oncology suite at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
