Equality and Diversity
The 275,000 patients we see each year are a natural reflection of the rich, diverse mix of communities and cultures in the UK. We are committed to serving everybody equally, without prejudice.
Alder Hey is an inclusive, supportive environment with warm and friendly staff. As an organisation we are mindful of the differing needs of individuals or groups and we aim to meet all expectations of us. To make sure we do this and develop our services where necessary, we actively engage with local community organisations.
If you are visiting Alder Hey as a patient, parent or carer, you might be interested to read our wheelchair and assisted access information.
What’s it got to do with me?
We use Equality and Diversity monitoring to help us get things right, and we never use your personal information. Even if it’s on the same form, it’s dealt with separately and the information you give isn’t linked back to you, we are committed to keeping all your information secure and confidential.
Monitoring is about collecting general statistics on who uses our services so we can make improvements for the people who need them – without the data we can only guess!
