A Healthier Future

A Healthier Future

Building a Healthier Future for Children and Young People

Our long standing ambition has always been to build a healthier future for children and young people everywhere.

We are building this healthier future through:

  • Our Alder Hey in the Park campus, devoted to improving children and young people's health.
  • Treating more children and young people than ever before, providing outstanding care at our Hospital, in community settings closer to our patients' home and across the North West, North Wales and the Isle of Man through specialist networks.
  • Strengthing and growing children's community and mental health services.
  • Continuing to enrol more children in clinical research than any other NHS provider.
  • Being a recognised leader in digitally-enabled healthcare and innovation, creating new life-changing products and therapies in partnership with children and young people, Industry and higher education institutions.
  • Recruiting and training more specialist staff, educating the next generation of doctors and nurses through our Alder Hey Academy and our apprenticeships schemes.
  • Collaboration with key partners who share our global ambition to drive the future delivery of children’s healthcare and greatly improve outcomes for young people in this country and beyond.
  • Being a strong advocate for children and young people's health and wellbeing, enabling all children to have the very best start in life and providing them with the support they need to grow and develop.
  • Working closely with families and other agencies to provide effective, integrated services and help support children and young people across the region. This includes supporting the City of Liverpool in its vision to become a UNICEF child friendly City which puts the needs of children first and at the heart.
  • Supporting our clinicians in working with colleagues across the world to develop future medicines, design improved healthcare facilities for children and share leading edge medical skills and expertise.

Our aim is to bring together the very best expertise, knowledge and healthcare and make a real impact on the lives and futures of children and young people across the world.
