Laingo Rourke announced that The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, a major new 11-storey specialist hospital in the heart of Liverpool is set to open on 27 June and will play a vital role in the second phase of the NHS response to coronavirus COVID-19. The new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre Liverpool will ensure the NHS in Cheshire and Merseyside is well placed to resume normal clinical activity by providing protected facilities for people with cancer, many of whom are particularly at risk if they catch coronavirus. It will also release capacity in other hospitals in the region. The spectacular 11-storey cancer hospital in the heart of Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter is part of a GBP 162 million investment in transforming cancer care for the 2.4 million people of Cheshire and Merseyside, a region where people are more likely to develop cancer than almost anywhere else in the country. Preparatory work began on site in late 2016 and formal construction got underway in 2017.

The new cancer hospital has 110 fully-single en-suite patient bedrooms which will reduce the risk of catching coronavirus. This is important because people with cancer can be at greater risk of becoming extremely unwell from the virus. There are also special isolation facilities for patients whose immune systems mean they are particularly vulnerable to infection.

Clatterbridge Cancer Centre Liverpool will deliver a wide range of highly-specialist cancer care including pioneering chemotherapy, immunotherapy, gene therapy and radiotherapy. The new hospital has state-of-the-art facilities for bone marrow transplant, diagnostics and imaging, outpatients, daycase treatments, a Teenage & Young Adult Unit, clinical therapies, and a wide range of cancer information and support.

Being on site with Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the University of Liverpool medical school will have huge benefits for people with cancer, now and in the future. It will enhance care for the most complex patients – for example, those who have heart, lung and kidney conditions as well as cancer – by providing rapid access to medical and surgical specialties. Patients will also have access to leading-edge clinical trials of new cancer treatments.

Clatterbridge Cancer Centre has been designed by leading architects BDP with AECOM providing all engineering services.
