2011 Royal College of Surgeons review of Department of Paediatric Surgery
In 2011 we invited the Royal College of Surgeons to Alder Hey to review a number of surgical cases in our Department of Paediatric Surgery.
This was as a result of some concerns raised with us by staff within the department.
The review concluded that we provide a ‘safe surgical service’ at Alder Hey.
