At Alder Hey, we’ve taken numerous measures to ensure all staff, patients and families remain safe when visiting our hospital.
Upon arriving at Alder Hey, you will be met by our new signage, to remind all visitors to wash their hands before continuing to their appointment or ward. Our volunteers will be on hand to help you find your nearest hand washing station, just look out for the pink t-shirts in our hospital atrium.
Our accident and emergency remains open. If your child has an urgent need or you are concerned, we encourage you to use our A&E. Here is A&E consultant Bimal, to tell you more:
We are following the latest national guidelines regarding personal protective equipment (PPE), and have restricted footfall in our hospital. We have also implemented social distancing on our premises, with clear floor signage to assist where possible.
We are testing all staff and their families, when symptomatic, and we are testing all children before operations.
To help patients and families, and to provide as much information as possible regarding COVID-19, we have a family support line which you can contact on 0151 282 4907. We have also created a dedicated information hub, to help keep you up to date with all the latest developments at Alder Hey.
All of these measures have been put in place to help us to continue providing the best care to all of our patients, families and staff, in the safest way possible.
