This month, our friends over at Clatterbridge Private Clinic are celebrating, because it’s their second birthday!
Located in Wirral, Clatterbridge Private Clinic is a modern, purpose-built centre that provides treatment and exceptional standards of care for private patients with cancer. It is part of the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust and serves to support the Trust through reinvesting profits back into the NHS to improve cancer care across the region.
Dr Shaun Tolan, Consultant Oncologist specialising in breast and urological cancers said about this milestone, “I feel incredibly proud to be part of the journey at Clatterbridge Private Clinic. Since opening two years ago we have worked hard to provide exceptional cancer care to our patients, which is consultant-led and tailored to the needs and preferences of our patients.”
“The second birthday also reminds us of all the patients and their families who we have provided care and treatment for. They are at the heart of everything we do. Taking the time to get to know them is an enjoyable part of our role and makes a difference to patients’ lives when they need it most.”
The Clinic offers patients access to the latest treatments and technologies and is the only dedicated private cancer facility in the UK to offer access to Papillon Therapy and Proton Beam Therapy to treat patients with bowel cancer and ocular melanoma respectively.
“Clatterbridge is leading the way with the development of cutting edge treatments, which are being recognised internationally. The Clinic draws patients nationally and there is an increasing proportion of private patients being referred from overseas, even as far away as New Zealand!” said Dr Tolan.
Since opening, the Clinic has treated patients from across the UK, with 15% of patients travelling from outside of the North West, in order to receive the highest level of expertise, knowledge and care for their cancer treatment.
We’re really proud to be working with such a fantastic organisation, and are looking forward to collaborating on some exciting projects together.
