I love the opportunities that blogging has created for me. It really has been very rewarding. To have people read what I write is such an honour. So when I saw that Alder Hey Children’s Charity were looking for help with their awareness campaign, I really wanted to get involved. To give something back and what better way then to support a children’s charity!
Alder Hey Children’s Charity
Alder Hey Children’s Charity raises vital funds to help make Alder Hey in the Park a truly world-class, patient-friendly hospital. The hospital cares for 275,000 patients and families every year. (As per their site, you can see that here)
Alder Hey Children’s Charity Appeal Background
The Institute in the Park
Alder Hey officially opened the first phase of a dedicated research, education and innovation centre in March 2016. The new centre will position Alder Hey and Liverpool as an international leader in the development of safer, more effective medicines. These medicines are made for children and young people throughout the world.
The Institute in the Park is a world-leading centre for research. Leading clinicians, healthcare professionals and scientists work with young patients and their families to produce life-saving and life-changing results.
The Institute in the Park is home to around 100 research, education and clinical staff. It has facilities that no other UK or European children’s hospital can offer. Within this building, researchers and clinicians develop safer medicines and therapies for children to use in the NHS and throughout the world.
The facility provides the perfect location for all Alder Hey’s teaching and training sessions. The building features are two lecture theatres, boardroom, a state-of-the art Library, dedicated e-learning suite and quiet study room. The facility has technology for live streaming from the hospital theatres. Video conferencing equipment enables events, meetings and teaching seminars to be broadcast around the world.
Alder Hey Children’s Charity Appeal
Alder Hey Children’s Charity is raising vital funds to build 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.
This second phase of construction will create a facility like no other, dedicated to children’s health research, innovation and education. Within this building, 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.
