Here at Alder Hey Children’s Charity we raise vital funds to help make Alder Hey Children’s Hospital a truly world-class, patient-friendly hospital for the 330,000 patients and families we care for every year.
Since 2013, over £65m has been raised for a range of life-saving medical equipment and facilities that are making a real difference every day.
That money also ensures that every child experiences Alder Hey magic – those little added extras that make the hospital experience the best it can be during a young person’s stay.
Life Saving Equipment
Our amazing NHS clinicians work around the clock to treat over 900 patients every day at Alder Hey. We are committed to supporting our NHS Foundation Trust to purchase the very latest equipment. Last year, a grant of £400,000 was used to purchase high end precision telemedicine robots, enabling specialist expertise to be accessed remotely for complex clinical cases.
Moments of Magic
We understand how important it is for children to have the opportunity to play and be creative, even when they are poorly. Last year you helped us fund over £100,000 towards the provision of Play Specialists, resources, art and craft materials and toys for patients, as well as presents and festivities for families at Christmas.
Research & Innovation
Last year donations totalling £40,000 helped our Innovation team to develop apps to support our NHS Trust. Through developing these apps, the team have also discovered new ways to utilise the technology in the future. By re-purposing and re-developing the apps, based on the templates built, the funding will continue to have a long-term impact at Alder Hey.
