The NIHR Alder Hey Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a state-of-the-art dedicated Clinical Research Facility, operated and housed within Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust (Alder Hey), which is one of Europe’s largest, busiest and most iconic children’s hospitals.
Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is committed to creating a healthier future for children and young people – and they are at the heart of everything we do.
Based in Liverpool, we are the busiest children and young people’s NHS Trust in the UK and have been a world leader in healthcare and research for over 100 years. We have a determined focus on delivering outstanding care, with the best people, working in partnership, alongside game-changing research and innovation. In September 2018 our dedicated research, innovation and education centre was completed, which sits alongside the hospital as part of our wider vision of an Alder Hey in the Park Campus.
Home to researchers, academics and industry partners, this Facility supports vital collaboration for better healthcare for children and young people in the future. We are here for children and young people. We improve their health and emotional wellbeing by providing the highest quality innovative care, and by working in partnership with all to improve the lives of all children and young people.
