|I just want to say how wonderful Alder Hey hospital is! I have a son who has had 3 week long stays in Alder Hey for various illnesses, he has also had his adenoids out there and is currently under Dr Riordan and Dr Paulus regarding his poor immune system. I have been trained to do immunoglobulin infusions at home by the haematology nurses and my son has had numerous blood tests and each and everytime the staff have been brilliant with both him and me as a very anxious mum!
I have also unfortunately been to the bereavement suite when my 4 week old nephew died and I don't think my sister who lost her son could have got through the ordeal without their support I know the rest of us couldnt they were also fantastic!
And finally today I had to visit ENT with my daughter to see Dr Donne who once again was great with my little girl an explained her condition thoroughly and made us confident that she will be looked after the way she should! Amoungst all of the above we have also had many late night trips to A&E an weekend trips to minor injuries with bumps an cuts an not once could I fault Alder Hey!
The Dr's and staff deserve more praise than I can give! Thank you!

|After our son, Tom, was not diagnosed at Warrington hospital we rushed to Alder hey who were fantastic!
Triage had us rushed into A&E to be greeted by Dr Grice who was astounding and could see right away all wasnt right! We were rushed to scan then ct then my son was sent into theatre...we were so afraid but all the staff made us feel like they were totally in control and the best was being done for him.
After the op he went to K3 and met our nurse Lesley who took such good care all night...ALL the nurses go beyond expectations. Catherine, Jane, Kay, Laura, and amazing Sheila (she can help with anything!)..Vicky our student too...so attentive and they all seemed to know what we needed before we asked!! I know Ive missed a lot of you please forgive me!
I have to say a special thanks to Mr Turnock the surgeon, the lovely anaesthetists, and Tachy(sp) my lovely friend who gave me the result of Tom's biopsy on Friday...he is all clear.
I dont know where we would have been without you all and I thank you from the bottom of my heart xx

|Alder Hey after being in since he was just one day old and receiving life saving surgery. He stayed in various parts of the hospital souch as the Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Unit.
We could not of asked for a better place for him to stay, or a better group of staff to help him become well enough for his return home just two days ago.
Of course this was a very emotional and mentally draining time for my family, however the staff at Alder Hey made the situation much easier for us. The hospital building itself is amazing and the work the staff do is incredible.
My nephew is now home safe and well and it is with thanks to all of the staff at Alder Hey, I cannot thank you all enough. My nephew will return in a few months time for his second operation, however after the treatment we received and the kindness of the staff we are much more confident with his stay in hospital.
On behalf of my family I would like to say an enormous Thankyou to everybody who cared for my nephew during his stay at Alder Hey.
We cannot Thank you enough, you saved his life which is more to us than we can express.
You are all heroes!
Many thanks and best wishes.

|On Saturday I made one of many visits to Alder Hey A and E dept. Having 4 active children we tend to see a lot of the place. One year ago to the day, my son Jake broke his knee cap and had nearly 7 months of treatment. So on returning with another injury to the same knee I was understandably anxious. The staff were as ever fantastic - from the receptionist who was so pleasant and helpful, the triage nurse who dealt quickly with him and the wonderful Consultant Dr Grice who was thorough and thoughtful and extremely competent. We're not sure what the outcome is yet, as its a bit early to say but I wanted to thank you all for your care and outstanding treatment of Jake in the instance but also on the many other occasions we have visited with our other children. I also want to say how grateful I am for the way you deal so well with parents, providing information and answering all manner of questions and worries.|

|Our Daughter Chloe was transferred to Alder Hey's intensive care unit in April 2009 after two other hospitals failed to diagnose her illness. Our beautiful daughter was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis and ADEM, an infection that caused her lungs to collapse and caused paralysis from the rib cage to her toes.
Chloe's outlook did not look good we were told to expect that she would be in a wheelchair and have possible learning difficulties due to the ADEM infection on her brain.
Nearly 3 years on Chloe is doing fantastic she is taking her SATS next year and is expected to get a score for a child 2 years older, her mobility is amazing and she has learnt extremely fast how to deal with the internal issues left by the infection. Chloe's recovery is partly because she is an extremely determined little girl that pushes herself to the extreme but mainly due to the AMAZING people at the hospital. Dr Steve Kerr and all of the nurses in ICU, Dr Spinty and the nurses in Neuromedical. Paul, Sara and Dave from the Physio Dept and Miss McAndrew and Sarah Doyle from Urology. Without these people and many more our Daughter would not be the inspiration that she is today. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for the past care and the ongoing care that Chloe is receiving.

|I would like to pass on my thanks to the staff at Alder Hey who made our 1st visit there yesterday a good experience. The staff we met were faultless, everyone we met were pleasant and helpful, from the 1st point at reception @ the main entrance, to the team at Gamma camera (xray). We were even taken to cardio, by a lovely young lady, from reception so our daughter could play in the play area for a couple of hours. And were ever we where, staff asked if we were ok and being seen too. Even the staff in the cafe where friendly and happy. This made such a difference to our day there, keep up the good work and thanks again.|
