Journey’s matter for our customers and they matter for the children and families of Alder Hey Children’s hospital. People prepare well for journeys when they go on holiday, but those that journey with Alder Hey often have no opportunity to prepare. The journeys that children and families undertake is often a life changing one and filled with worry and disruption, confusion and long term consequences.

For patients and families, it’s important to provide information about their hospital stay so they are able to plan their visit in advance, as well as being able to refer to this information during their time at Alder Hey. This information will be stored on the App and will be available to them whenever they should need it.


The money we raise to fund the development of the ‘hospital information’ part of the app and this will be invaluable to parents whose children are treated at Alder Hey.
