About Alder Hey

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.

In 2015 we opened a state-of-the-art hospital alongside a brand new research, innovation and education centre. Alder Hey in the Park and the Institute in the Park bring together excellent care, technology and design to provide the best possible healing environment for children and their families.

In addition to our main hospital site, we offer paediatric services at a number of community sites and hold local clinics across Merseyside, Cumbria, Shropshire, Wales and the Isle of Man. We also provide specialist inpatient care for children with complex mental health needs at our Alder Park Building in North Liverpool.

We are…

  • A Centre of Excellence for cancer, as well as spinal, heart and brain conditions
  • A regional cardiac surgical centre
  • A regional paediatric burns centre
  • A Department of Health Centre for Head and Face Surgery
  • A Centre of Excellence for Muscular Dystrophy and the first UK Centre of Excellence for Childhood Lupus
  • One of four national centres for childhood epilepsy surgery, a joint service with the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital
  • A designated children’s Major Trauma Centre

We have...

  • Europe’s first intra-operative 3-T MRI scanner in a paediatric setting. This is a pioneering technology for neurosurgery, reducing repeat operations in 90% of cases
  • A new hybrid operating theatre which is the first in the country suitable for operating on children from different specialties including heart, brain or spinal surgery
