*** All haemato-oncology outpatient clinics and inpatient wards continue to be provided at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital***

As of 1st July 2017, the Haemato-Oncology department, previously part of the Royal Liverpool Hospital, became part of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust.

There are many reasons for this change including:

  • Being able to work more closely with other cancer teams and improve services for all patients with cancer
  • Improving the speed and accuracy of diagnosis of blood cancers
  • Improving the care of patients with non-cancerous blood disorders under our care
  • Providing access to a range of services currently available to patients with other cancers, through The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre

What does this change mean for patients?

  • All haemato-oncology outpatient clinics and inpatient wards in the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, will be provided by The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre from July 1st
  • Patients will see no change or disruption to the service they previously received
  • Patients will see the same doctors and nurses they always have
  • They will continue to attend appointments in the usual clinics based within the Royal Liverpool University Hospital
  • From July 1st patient letters will have the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre logo on them (if you are a new patient under the care of the Haemato-oncology department, this does not necessarily mean that you have a blood cancer)
  • Patients will NOT attend clinics at either of the Clatterbridge sites (Wirral & Aintree)
  • All other services, such as blood tests, X-rays, and scans, will continue to be provided in the Royal Liverpool University Hospital

If you are a patient within the Haemato-oncology department and would like require further information, please don’t hesitate to ask a member of your clinical team.
