Here at Alder Hey, we are treating more children and young people than ever before and our fantastic staff continue to go the extra mile to ensure we remain one of the leading performers in the NHS.
Alder Hey is rated ‘Outstanding’ in the caring domain and ‘Good’ overall by the Care Quality Commission:
During 2018/19, we delivered all access standards required of us including within cancer treatment, for elective and cardiac surgery and waiting time in our Emergency Department (where we finished the year as one of the top ten performers in the country).
More patients than ever are being treated by our outpatient and physiotherapy teams, our theatre teams have transformed the delivery of emergency lists and our Critical Care Team continue to provide outstanding care to some of our sickest patients. We have also improved our support for children with complex healthcare needs and have introduced a new 24/7 crisis care service for patients experiencing mental health distress.
Alder Hey is a key part of NHS England’s Global Digital Exemplar Programme which aims to lead the way for the NHS to use better information technology systems, delivering benefits for patients
and sharing learning and resources with other local organisations. Our GDE Programme has delivered a range of specialty packages as we aim to become more digital across our clinical services. We have also played a lead role across Cheshire and Merseyside, working with partners to develop and implement a shared health information exchange for the local population.
