Charity Spotlight - Alder Hey Children's Hospital

I first came across Alder Hey Children's Hospital as a teenager. The hospital was one of three that featured in a BBC documentary series. Even way back then I remember being wowed by the amazing work they did.

That amazing work continues in 2017 as Alder Hey Children's Hospital grows with their Institute in the Park. 

Alder Hey Children's Hospital's new building

Back in March 2016 Alder Hey and the University of Liverpool opened the first phase of a state-of-the-art research and innovation centre. As a neighbour to the main hospital, the Institute in the Park brings Alder Hey, Liverpool and the UK to the forefront in the development of care and medicines for children and young people, not only here but around the world.

The Institute currently employs around 100 clinical, research and education staff and is fast becoming a world-leading centre for research. Working in partnership with patients and their families they create life-changing and life-saving results. 

To continue this remarkable work Alder Hey Children's Hospital is currently seeking to raise essential funds for expansion of the Institute in the Park. Funds raised will allow the hospital to expand not just the space available to them but also the opportunity to develop and improve treatments and continue with world class research. 

Development and expansion of Alder Hey's Institute in the park will create a hospital like no other in the world. With dedication to research, education and innovation  Alder Hey's team of clinicians and researchers will continue to work with colleagues and partners within the world of academia, technology and pharmaceuticals to develop safer and improved medicines and therapies for our children.

Why is this important to me I hear you ask? Well, it's pretty simple really! I'm a mother. I have a child. Should he ever need care for any reason I'd like it be the best care and treatment available to him and Alder Hey could create this with their ongoing work and studies.

Now think about this. How often do you see a family striving to raise money for the treatment of a sick child? Whether it be the speed of online news or the sharing of pages on social media, there seems to be more and more poorly children. The work of Alder Hey may change that. 

The more we know, the healthier they grow.
