Welcome to Alder Hey, one of the leading children’s healthcare providers in Western Europe.
Located in the historic city of Liverpool, we have a national and international reputation for Outstanding care and are one of only a small number of NHS Trusts in the United Kingdom to provide a comprehensive range of specialist services exclusively for children and young people.
To us, every child is an individual. As well as providing them with the very best care, we aim to help them feel happy, safe and confident as they play, learn and grow. We care for their families as well as for them, and our commitment extends beyond medicine and surgery into supporting their physical and emotional wellbeing.
Above everything, children and young people stand at the heart of all we do, driving us to deliver the best care than we can, every time, and to develop new thinking that will change lives for generations to come.
Ranked in the Top Ten of Newsweek’s World’s Best Specialised Hospitals 2022 (Paediatrics), Alder Hey Children’s Hospital cares for over 330,000 children, young people and their families every year.
As one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals, we treat everything from common illnesses to highly complex and specialist conditions.
Our state-of-the-art hospital and research, innovation and education centre bring together excellent care, technology and design to provide the best possible healing environment for children and their families.
We know that a children’s hospital is different and that our job is more than just treating an illness. To us, every child is an individual. As well as giving them the very best care, we set out to make them feel happy, safe and confident as they play, learn and grow. At Alder Hey we are here to look after a child and their family.
Alder Hey has a thriving research portfolio and leads research into children’s medicines, infection, inflammation and oncology. We contribute to public health, lead cutting-edge research and teach the next generation of children’s specialists.
For over 100 years, Alder Hey has been providing innovative high-quality care for children and young people.
