Alder Hey has a unique vision to create the first Children's Health Park in the UK for the children, young people and communities of Merseyside and beyond.
We are already the hospital of choice for families in the north-west and beyond. Since the introduction of Patient Choice in April 2008, more and more families are choosing Alder Hey for their children and teenagers, and we are seeing more than 10 per cent year-on-year increases in referrals. We are simply bursting at the seams and want to make our excellent services available to as wide a population as possible. To do this we have developed a vision which will serve our patients now and for generations to come:
As one of the biggest children’s hospitals in Europe – and a tertiary specialist centre with a world-class reputation – we believe it is our duty to work to prevent the effects of economic and social issues on our children and young people. Read about our public health strategy here.
We need to provide a world-class platform for this our work to continue, to grow and to be made available – from Merseyside – to children who need it locally, nationally and internationally.
