Ricky Tomlinson launches Clatterbridge centre for Oncology £100k appeal

Posted on Jul 13, 2011

Royle Family star Ricky Tomlinson launched a Wirral hospital’s campaign to help cancer patients. Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology has appealed for £100,000 to refurbish a unit for people with head and neck cancer.

The Mask Moulding Unit at the hospital currently helps protect patients who need radiotherapy. A specialist radiographer makes masks of every patient’s face to make sure they stay completely still during treatment. But the facilities are in desperate need of refurbishment, say health chiefs.

Ricky said: “The work that goes on in the Mask Moulding Unit is fascinating. but I can see it’s quite a scary thing for some cancer patients.

“It’s brilliant to hear that Clatterbridge your cancer centre is raising money to make sure those patients get the best treatment in the best possible surroundings.”
