About the service

The Lilac Centre Logo

The Lilac Centre is a haematology and oncology day unit based at St Helens Hospital. The centre operates from Monday to Friday from 08.00am until 5.00pm. We are closed all Bank Holidays.

The Lilac Centre is predominantly a Chemotherapy / Immunotherapy Day Unit, however we also provide treatment/care for those patients that require other intravenous infusions or supportive therapies such as blood and platelet transfusions.

We achieved the Macmillan Cancer Support Quality Environment Mark Award in 2010, 2014 and 2017, the first chemotherapy unit nationally to receive this prestigious award aiming to improve the wellbeing of people living with cancer.

The Lilac Centre offers holistic therapies to support patients and carers; this includes counselling support and complimentary therapies such as reiki, aromatherapy, reflexology and hot stone therapy.

The Lilac Centre and Ward 2A at Whiston Hospital provide a 24-hour advice line for patients. We have a policy which encourages patients to phone if they are experiencing problems related to their chemotherapy treatment, on 01744 646170. Out of hours contact numbers will be given to you on your first visit to the Lilac Centre. If you are unwell out of hours you may be advised to attend A&E (please take your Chemotherapy Alert card).
