A 10 year old boy dangerously ill being raced by ambulance to Alder Hey where he was immediately operated on. He was to spend 6 weeks in ward E.3.with acute peritonitis and pneumonia and 6 weeks in out- patience while a shunt in his belly exuded the putrid poison from his system. I was that little boy in 1948 and I have always been grateful to Alder Hey and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“though belatedly, IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢d like to thank all those who cared for me there, from the lowly day workers up to the late great childrens surgeon Miss Isabella Forshall. It was the luckiest day of my life when her star crossed mine and I have enjoyed nearly 70 years of life since that fateful ride in that Ambulance. I must also be thankful for the wonder drug penicillin, which until then had only recently come available to civilians.
Thank you to the staff in ED and EDU who looked after Benjamin on Wednesday 6 April. It's always a bit scary coming back to hospital but you made it as straight forward as possible with your kindness and professionalism, thank you.
I forgot to bring my sons major buggy to his appointment today which makes it really quite difficult as he has difficulties going into areas where people are and he is really strong and sometimes difficult to manage when he lays on the floor as he gets so distressed. I was getting my 2 sons something to eat after his appointment and once I finally got the 2 boys there 5 piece lunchbox I realised you could only pay cash at the till. At this point I was ready to burst into tears at the thought of another struggle with my son as I would have to leave lunch boxes to go to cash point. One lady in the queue I presume had seen my earlier struggles and offered to pay for the kids boxes once I had told the lady at till I would leave getting them as my son would struggle to get to cash point. This was such a lovely gesture but I kindly refused. The lady at the till named Jackie then told her colleague she was going and walked with me carrying the boxes so my son would follow her (he would have been upset an not understood if I had left the boxes to go and get money out the bank). My son walked sensibly to the cash point and back and Jackie was talking to them along the way and was such a help. It may not have seemed much to her but too me and my 2 sons it was a massive help and I want to say thank you.
The heart operation that I had 45 years ago at Alder Hey saved my life and I am still going strong!
Had our first check up at the new site yesterday. My son calls Alder hey "batman hospital" as he loved the large Batman in the cardiac area. He was a little nervous being somewhere new but as soon as he saw batman had made the move too he was so pleased.
As always all the staff were wonderful, friendly and great with kids.
We'll forever be thankful to all the amazing staff at alder hey for taking such great care of Luca before, during and after his heart surgery.
Thanks to you Alder Hey. I took my son to the AE on 20/01/16 and he had to have an urgent operation. Words can not explain how satisfied I am with your service Thank you. The staff so kind and professional. Both my son and I were in shock on the urgency of the operation and we had an hour to put ourselves together ready for the operation, but the staff made it 100 times better for us through their kindness.My son's words after the operation- mum I feel so much better, I could not ask for more I wanna hug the surgeon- Thanks again !!!!

Hi my little girl sadie was in alder hey for 3 months following her arrival in June 2016. We already were aware of her heart condition before her arrival. Since being at alder hey she has had surgery on her heart and unfortunately suffered complications as a result of the heart operation meaning she required further surgery on her bowel. I cannot thank enough her surgeons who were ram who carried out the heart surgery send Dr Colin Baille who carried out her 2 bowel operations. You have saved my daughters life - thank you to the fantastic staff on ICU and the cardiac ward. You will never know the gratitude we have for you. Michelle and Dan parents to Sadie O
Big thank you to all the staff at the A & E department for taking care of my Grandson Aaron. The nurses and doctor were brilliant even though they were so busy with all the sick kids presented at reception. Every single child assessed at triage as quick as possible and treated in order of priority. Well done and thank you.
No stress at all. Then onto Pharmacy dept. Quick and prompt service. Thanks again for the help and support.
Nearly 7 months ago I had a 2 part brain surgery here, amazing staff on ward 4a was fabulous during my 3 week stay, a massive thankyou to Andrea mclaren my epilepsy nurse, Ben cooper, Dr. Iyer and most of all Sasha burns my surgeon, you've given me a life I never thought I'd have
My son has TGA and VSD, iv never met such wonderful staff and a brilliant hospital that takes care of many many patients.
It was hard being in the hospital not being able to bond with my son, but i had a lot of support from the staff and also family.
My son was a week old when he had his op, i cried and cried but the staff was so helpful and was always there for me-Special Care Unit staff was amazing, the surgical staff was brilliant and they saved my little boy, without them i wouldn't have my son by my side and I'm so thankful for that. The staff on ward 1c was amazing too.
we have regular check ups with his Dr, (dr Johnson) brilliant dr towards Daniel.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the staff in the Regional Vascular Anomalies Service, especially Laser Sister Carla Gleave and Laser Nurse Lynn James who have been absolutely amazing in treating our little girlÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s haemangioma. After a terrifying experience in September, Carla and Lynn have not only looked after our baby but us as well. Their professionalism, care and cuddles have meant so much to us all. We still have a little way to go but we know that we are in the best hands. Thank you so much Carla and Lynn.
****i attended alderhey yearly for 5 years for a review of my daughters clicky hip. Sue Saville oversaw my daughters care and remembered us year after year. Sue, you are a special person. Thank you for such personal, warm and professional help. Your approach was so caring and genuine and I will always be grateful. With love.
I would very much like to thank the staff on reception After my visit today.
I had to deliver an important form to a department in building 1, which I couldn't find.
One of the assistance staff, an 83 year old lady (I didn't catch her name) went above and beyond to help me. She walked me quite a long distance in the rain to make sure I got to the right place.
She is a credit to your team. Thank you
Just writing to say a massive thank you to the staff at Accident and Emergency this afternoon 11th Jan 2016. In particular a big thanks to staff nurse Natalie who was working on triage.
Natalie's positive and friendly manner helped to settle our 2 year old boy which meant he could be examined easily. He'd had a fall and lip was badly cut.
Fortunately no further treatment was needed, except for an ice lolly given to our boy by Natalie, which made his day.
my doctor sent me to alder hey to get my 6 week old daughter checked as he thought her stomach looked swollen. all A&E staff inc triage nurse on the 22/12/15 were amazing!! they took my daughter off me asked lots of questions,as they were doing blood tests lumbar punches the lot. she then got sent to ward 4C green, wen the docs came and told me she had citrobatic freudi meningitis, my heart sank. but after 3 weeks of treatment my little girl is ready to go home. I owe all staff who cared an treated Alannah her life, they were all incredible. the triage nurse and doctor that day on A&E what a great job u did to act as quickly as you did with my daughter. but thanks again to all staff on ward 4C Green you are all amazing , especially, Jan, Karen, Danielle, Zoe, ann marie, francis

My son is currently under the care of Mr. David Wright and his team. Luke has cerebral palsy and has just received botox treatment. Luke is usually very anxious and panicky as to what is planned for him but Mr. David Wright isn`t just a brilliant surgeon but is also very good with children, my son is kept calm and cheerful, Luke always looks forward to visiting him. I am always kept upto date with plans for Luke and David Wright`s secretary is always very helpful when I feel the need to ring up for anything. Luke`s treatment is ongoing, I know he`s in very good hands of some very fine people, thank you to all. Not to forget to mention, the gait analysis team and orthotics too.
It's a good job there are people on hand in the atrium to assist people with directions or we would have been lost
Thank you to everyone on ward 4C who helped put a smile back on my baby boys face. Although I'm grateful for everyone from the Staff in radiology, to the caterers, to the staff who work in the labs, a few staff stood out to me & I would like to give them a mention Marie from domestics, Dr O'Connor, Cara, Martin, Leah & Amy the Student nurse & a mention to the very polite Chris in the pink shirt down on the ground floor. Although Anakin has still got to have more test, it's great to see him smile, play & more importantly eat again.
I would just like to give a BIG thank you to all of the staff at Alder Hey who helped care for my youngest daughter in the ICU. You were all so kind, helpful and made us feel more positive whilst we were there. So once again thank you for all your help, your all a credit to the hospital!!

So many nice gestures on the ward too staff where so helpful and polite.

Nikki Sandford in the orthodontic department is quite simply superb. He has dealt superbly with my daughter who can be very difficult due to having Aspergers and made every effort to put her in control throughout the whole procedure and prior appointments. When there was an appointment problem his secretary listened to the issue and was able to resolve it putting the needs of my daughter first. I canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t thank him and his team enough for making what could have been a very traumatic day a ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œwalk in the park.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
We attended Alder Hey for an ENT appointment for my son Ben today. Massive thanks to Dr Ian Street and his team for assessing and treating Ben quickly and professionally.
Dr Street was brilliant when explaining everything to my son despite him asking 3000 questions! making his visit to hospital enjoyable and stress free. Thank you.
I would like to say a big thankyou to Laura in the Phlebotomy department. She put my son at ease and took the blood sample quickly and as pain free as possible.
As always the staff were amazing, I am so thankful that they are available to treat my son.
Many thanks to all the staff at AlderHey where my grandson spent the first eight weeks of his life which required him to undergo extensive procedures.
A special thank you to Fiona in the chaplancy team who was able to support the baby's parents when I was unable to be there with them at a very stressful time; Initially had difficulty in locating "The Sanctuary" as I asked to visit the "prayer room" feel is not the best description for a "chaplancy unit;"
The amazing 3a and it's fabulous staff helped Luke Gandy above and beyond when it was most needed. The whole team showed outstanding care despite being very busy dealing with a number of complex health conditions and poorly babies, kids and teenagers. They made us smile on some really hard days. Luke and his family THANK YOU ALL VERY VERY MUCH.
Huge thanks to all in Cardiology- namely Dr Lim and all of the team. my son, James had Kawasaki disease at 10 weeks old which left him with two large aneurysms in his coronary arteries. He's now 5 and the team in cardiology have monitored his progress, putting us all at ease at every stage of treatment. After frequent visits and stays, we now have 18 months before the next stage of treatment -we're so happy, we skipped out of there last week. Thank you all x

Our son Alex came to Alder Hay in November for brain surgery because of his uncontrolled epilepsy. He was admitted on the 23rd of November and was discharged on the 15th of January. The staff from the surgeons to our consultant, to all the doctors and nurses across wards 4a and 4b, the epilepsy team, the physios and the occupational therapists and anyone else I may have forgotten, they were all amazing and Alex wouldn't be where he is today if it wasn't for every single one of them. Alex had to learn to walk again among other things and he accomplished them so quickly because of the hard work put in by everyone at the hospital. I can't thank them all enough, they helped us get through a very hard time for our family and now we are able to concentrate on the future. Alex still improves daily and we are very happy to say that he has been seizure free since his operation in November which is something we could of only ever dreamed of. Alex is always asking when we are going back to hospital again and the hospital school, this is a big thing for Alex because previous to this stay, it was hard for Alex to spend longer than 30 minutes in hospital as he couldn't stand to be there. Thank you all so much! You don't know what you have done for all of us!
