Join Our Forum

The Forum@Alderhey is a platform for children, young people and their families to share their experiences raise any issues and share ideas to enable a positive experience.
The forum provides opportunities to meet other children, young people & parents to share ideas and work as partners in care to make Alder-Hey a world renowned service. A service which is truly child-centred and where the voices of children and young people and their parents are valued participants in decision making and innovation for the future.

What we’ve been up to

Since we re- launched the Forum, we now have an official name which is ‘The Forum@AlderHey’ and have created our own strapline: “inspired by children, a voice for all”.

We have chosen a bright new uniform, so we can stand out and be noticed.

We have the privilege of having our new Executive Member, Lisa Cooper, being an active part of The Forum@Alderhey.

Parents' Group

We also are recruiting for our parents group at The Forum@Alderhey.

The mission of our parents' group is to bring the voice and perspective of parents and families about their hospital experience. Members of the Family Forum work to promote the practice of family-centred care, advocating for children and their families to be full partners in their medical care, and to help with the hospital's ongoing commitment to improve quality and patient safety at Children’s Hospital.

If you are Parents, guardians, and adult primary caregivers of children who receive care at Alder hey Children’s Hospital you are welcome to join.  Adults who received care for a long-term or chronic condition as children at Alder Hey Children's Hospital may also apply.

We look forward to meeting you all.
