In Autumn 2021 Alder Hey Childrens Charity launched a £2.5m Surgical Neonatal Appeal, supported by Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher. The new Surgical Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a joint project between Alder Hey and Liverpool Womens NHS Foundation Trust.

The planned unit will address a shared concern between the hospital Trusts that newborn babies who need specialist surgery currently have to be transferred to Alder Hey to get the care they need, before being transferred back to Liverpool Womens Hospital to continue their neonatal care after surgery has been completed. The new unit will allow all surgical neonatal care to be provided from Alder Hey rather than between multiple facilities, which has multiple benefits for the baby and the families.

The planned facility will cost £16.5m to build with the Charity Appeal planning to contribute £2.5m. Charity funding will provide over and above enhancements and equipment for both the clinical space and family areas, elevating it from a facility that provides families with a safe and secure environment for them and their new-borns, to a truly world-class facility that wraps around families that need care for the regions more vulnerable babies.
