Rosie said: It is fantastic news that the Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (CCO) will be establishing a satellite radiotherapy centre including the provision of 3 Linear Accelerator Units on the Aintree Hospital site. This will mean that most West Lancashire patients will not have to travel across the river to South Wirral for their cancer treatment.
Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (CCO) is really bringing home the Government’s commitment to treatment as close to home as possible. It's absolutely right that patients should be able to devote all their energies to getting better. Having these services available closer to West Lancs means that patients energy isn’t wasted on long and tiring journeys to and from hospital which will really help them with their recovery.
I am welcome this move and the real benefits it will bring for patients in West Lancs seeking local access to cancer treatment services. Well done to Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (CCO) for putting patient’s interests to the fore.
