Patients and staff at the old site of Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool will make the final big move to the new buildings this weekend. The £250 million premises include state-of-art medical technology and facilities for surgeons to contact different locations on screen during operations. A huge tunnel from the old building to the new will be used to transfer hundreds of patients. The former site on Eaton Road in West Derby will be demolished and turned into parkland.
