Please be aware – Alder Hey is a no smoking site
Alder Hey in the Park is a no smoking site, that means you can’t smoke anywhere – inside and outside.
If you want to smoke you have to leave the Alder Hey campus completely and go to the public roads. If you do smoke on site you will be asked to stop.
If you are a smoker please prepare yourself in advance for not being able to smoke while you are with us.
Exposure to second hand smoke can have serious health consequences for young patients, families and staff and cigarette butts spoil the environment at our new hospital. We thank all our visitors in advance for not smoking on site.
