Its chemotherapy clinics are located in district hospitals across Cheshire and Merseyside, and also offer a revolutionary Treatment at Home service to those who require it. Because of their combined resources, they can offer a full range of inpatient services, advanced radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and other systemic anti-cancer therapies such as gene therapy and immunotherapy. Furthermore, they are the only institution in the UK that provides low-energy proton beam therapy for the treatment of rare eye cancers.

The Wirral Peninsula is located in North West England. The roughly rectangular peninsula is about 15 miles (24 kilometres) long and 7 miles (11 kilometres) wide, and it is bounded on the west by the River Dee, which forms a border with Wales, on the east by the River Mersey, and on the north by the Irish Sea. 


The Metropolitan Borough of Wirral is a metropolitan borough in the county of Merseyside in the North West region of the United Kingdom. It is located on the northern tip of the Wirral Peninsula, has a population of 321,238 people, and covers an area of 60 square miles. The major settlements in the area include Birkenhead, Wallasey, Bebington, Heswall, Hoylake, and West Kirby. The Wirral peninsula is credited with hosting the world's bloodiest battle. The Battle of Brunanburh, which is said to have occurred in 937AD in the present-day Bromborough and Bebington area between the King of England and an alliance of Celtic monarchs.


St. Anselm's College is one of several maintained schools in Birkenhead, including Birkenhead Park School (formed by the merger of Rock Ferry and Park High Schools) and Birkenhead Park School (formed through the merger of Rock Ferry High School and Park High School). 


Birkenhead also has two independent schools. Birkenhead School is the oldest. Until 2000, the school's sixth form was exclusively for boys. In 2008, it became fully co-educational for students aged 3–18. Andrew Irvine and Philip Toosey, heroes of the Battle of the Bridge on the River Kwai, and Tony Hall, Director-General of the BBC are among the "Old Birkonians" (among others). 


Birkenhead High School Academy, formerly Birkenhead Girls High School, accepts students of all abilities. It was founded in 1885 and serves girls aged 3 to 19. The Girls' Day School Trust originally sponsored it, but now the government does. Actress Patricia Routledge graduated from the school. By becoming a state-funded Academy school in 2009, Birkenhead Girls High School increased educational opportunities for students. This decision, like Birkenhead School's transition to co-education, was partly motivated by declining student numbers, yet the school remains a single-sex institution. 


Formerly on Borough Road, Birkenhead College now has campuses on Europa Boulevard and Twelve Quays. Originally known as Birkenhead Technical College, it has been known as Wirral Metropolitan College since the early 1980s. Glenda Jackson, the Oscar-winning actress and Member of Parliament born in Birkon in 1936, has a theatre named after her on Borough Road. Glenda Jackson was a famous former student. Among the other colleges in the area is Birkenhead Sixth Form College, which used to be Corpus Christi Catholic High School in Claughton.

Birkenhead Bus Station provides service to the town of Birkenhead. The Grange Shopping Centre and Birkenhead Market are nearby. 

It features eleven stands as well as a travel centre. Arriva North West and Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire are the main bus operators at the station. 

Buses depart from the bus station and travel throughout Birkenhead, the Wirral, and to the nearby city of Liverpool via the Queensway Tunnel. There are also frequent services to Chester from the station.

Train: The Chester and Birkenhead Railway opened in Birkenhead in 1840, ushering in the city's railway era. When the Woodside and Birkenhead Dock Street Tramway opened in 1873, this station was most likely the site of the world's first tram-to-train connection[46]. [45] In 1886, an underground railway system connecting Birkenhead and Liverpool was built, which is now part of the Merseyrail network and serves both cities. 


Hamilton Square is Birkenhead's most important underground station, as well as the station closest to the ferry terminal. The Hamilton Square station is linked to the Wirral Line's "Liverpool Loop," which includes the underground stations of James Street, Moorfields, Liverpool Lime Street, and Liverpool Central. The Wirral Line's "Liverpool Loop" includes Hamilton Square station. Birkenhead Central is an open but underground station; Green Lane is also below ground level; Rock Ferry; Conway Park is also below ground level; Birkenhead Park is below ground level; and Bidston is below ground level. Birkenhead North and Bidston are two other stations in the city. 


The Wirral Line connects Birkenhead to Chester and Ellesmere Port in the south, New Brighton in the north, and West Kirby in the west, running through the Wirral Peninsula. The Borderlands Line departs from Bidston station to the north of Birkenhead. It then travels through the rural heart of Wirral before leaving England near Shotton and ending in Wrexham, Wales.


In addition to Birkenhead Park, Mersey Park and Victoria Park are two other recreational open spaces worth visiting in Birkenhead. Arrowe Park is a large park on the outskirts of town, on the city's western outskirts. In 1929, this location hosted the Third World Scout Jamboree. 


According to legend, the first two Boy Scout groups in the world, the 1st and 2nd Birkenhead units, were formed in the YMCA on the same night in 1908. The 2nd Birkenhead Scout Organization has been running for over a century, making it the world's oldest continuously operating scout group.
