    Exclamation Liverpool Hospitals

    Europe's biggest children's hospital

    LIVERPOOL'S Alder Hey hospital is in talks with Sefton, Wirral and Knowsley borough councils about a possible move out of the city.

    The Daily Post understands that Europe's biggest children's hospital fears its plans to rebuild and modernise on its existing site will not go smoothly.

    And last night hospital executives said they were seriously considering options to move out to another borough.

    It follows opposition to their plans to expand on to neighbouring parkland, the favourite option for the hospital's rebuilding programme.

    But a city planning councillor last night said it would it was unlikely to get permission for the plans.

    This also follows the news that The Royal Liverpool hospital may also be leaving Liverpool.

    What's going on? I would like both to stay in the city.

    Default Alder Hey in urgent talks

    URGENT talks will be held between officials to stop Alder Hey hospital leaving Liverpool.

    Senior city councillors agreed to enter fresh discussions to try to sort settle the future of the children's hospital.

    As revealed in the ECHO, health officials considered 15 sites, with Springfield Park and one near the A557 in Widnes favourite.

    But a debate last night revealed the splits among community leaders about Alder Hey's 300m plan to build new premises on Springfield Park, West Derby.

    The hospital says it will leave Liverpool for a site in Widnes if it cannot redevelop the park, which is next to its existing facilities.

    However, many local residents oppose the plan, saying it will wipe out green space.

    Liverpool council voted to start talks with the hospital to keep Alder Hey in the city, and thoroughly investigate the Springfield Park plan.

    Default Alder Hey is staying in Liverpool - it's as simple as that.

    ALDER Hey Children's Hospital looks certain to stay in Liverpool, the Daily Post can reveal.

    The city's entire ruling executive board paid a visit to the world-renowned West Derby hospital on Friday to meet senior hospital managers.

    So it should !! There's no question about it as far as I'm concerned.
    There's no other place for Alder Hey but here in Liverpool where it belongs.

    What an absolute injustice it would have been for Alder Hey to have had to move out of the city, it's as well known in some quarters as the beatles are in others.

    Now, what's happening with the Royal hospital, do they still want the new site for a city gateway, sod us all if we get sick !!!!
