Alder Hey and Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust are working in partnership to change and improve how neonatal services are delivered to families across the North West.
Together, we have formed the ‘Liverpool Neonatal Partnership’, focused on creating a single service that is safer for young babies.
By working together within a partnership, we will be able to provide the very best neonatology and surgical expertise, ensuring the highest standards of care and the very best clinical outcomes.
The Liverpool Neonatal Partnership is being led by a Senior Leadership Team and will be supported by specialist staff from both hospitals, including consultant neonatologists, consultant neonatal surgeons, advanced nurse practitioners and specialist neonatal nurses.
Mary Passant is the Programme Manager for the Liverpool Neonatal Partnership. Watch the video below to hear how she thinks this new unit will benefit families and staff alike:
Improvements have already been made to the way neonatal care is being delivered, including colleagues from both hospitals working more closely together across both sites.
The Neonatal Unit at Liverpool Women’s Hospital has also been redeveloped and a Neonatal Intensive and High Dependency Care Unit opened in February 2020. The next exciting refurbishment phase has continued the remaining parts of the existing unit, which was re-modelled and provides new special care bed bays and other supporting spaces.
