As a mother of four children we have been lucky enough, to not have to call on the services of Alder Hey, although we have had numerous hospital admissions in another part of the country. When a child requires hospital intervention, the stress and anxiety caused to the child and family are immense. It is essential that the child and family are supported and treated by highly trained experts, in their field of medicine. I have a friend who travels long distances with her child to Alder Hey Hospital for monitoring and intervention of her child's heart condition.
The Institute In The Park
Alder Hey Children's Charity are currently raising vital funds for their brand new state of the art research facility - The Institute In The Park.
Alder Hey and the University of Liverpool officially opened the first phase, of the dedicated research, education and innovation centre in March 2016.
The new centre positions Alder Hey and Liverpool as an international leader in the development of safer and more effective medicines for children and young people throughout the world.
The Institute in the Park is a world-leading centre for research, with leading clinicians, healthcare professionals and scientists working in partnership with young patients and their families to produce remarkable life-saving and life-changing results.
The Institute in the Park is home to around 100 research, education and clinical staff and has facilities that no other UK or European children’s hospital can offer.
The facility also provides the perfect location for all Alder Hey’s teaching and training sessions, along with larger conferences and events.
The building features two lecture theatres, a boardroom seating, a state-of-the art Library, dedicated e-learning suite and quiet study room. Video conferencing equipment enables Alder Hey to beam events, meetings and teaching seminars around the world and the facility has technology for live streaming from the hospital theatres.
Alder Hey Children's Charity appeal
Alder Hey Children’s Charity is now focused on raising funds for the second phase of The Institute In The Park.
This appeal will allow the hospital to extend the current Institute building and develop even better treatments for children and young people.
The second phase of the Centre will allow the hospital to double the space available to undertake world class research and innovation.
The completion of this second phase will create a facility like no other. Solely dedicated to children's health research, innovation and education. Researchers and clinicians will continue to work with partners in academia, technology and pharmaceuticals to develop safer, better medicines and therapies for children to use in the NHS and throughout the world.
