Alder Hey is uniquely placed to play a critical role in improving the health and wellbeing of our children, young people and their families. We treat over 250,000 children a year, and therefore see around 500,000 parents/carers and a significant amount of visitors.
We view this as an opportunity to make a difference to these people both now, and in the future.
We have learned a lot since our first public health strategy in 2007 and our journey to make health promotion a priority for our patients, their families and our staff continues.
In July 2012 the World Health Organisation granted the Trust secured Health Promoting Hospital reaccreditation until 2016.
We provide information and support on the following aspects of health promotion
- Accident Prevention
- Midwife Clinics at Alder Hey
- Dental Health Promotion
- Everton in the Community Workshops and Soccer Spa
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Activity
- Sensible Drinking
- Smoking Cessation
