“As strategic drivers of improvement and change in healthcare across Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire and South Cumbria, we share a common purpose with the North West Coast AHSN and already work closely with them on high-level initiatives to improve patient care.

“The move into the same building brings great benefits for both organisations, joint initiatives and access to the wider community of cutting-edge science and innovation at Sci-Tech Daresbury. We are looking forward to continuing our work to invest in the health of future generations, improving outcomes for patients and their families.”
