Each year Liverpool Women’s delivers over 8,000 babies cares for 1,000 poorly babies on its neonatal unit and undertakes 10,000 gynaecological procedures; 50,000 patients cross its door each year.

From the very beginning the hospital has had a strong charitable presence and it is due to supporters like you that we are now extremely fortunate to have the largest specialist hospital in Europe right on our doorstep.

Why is leaving a charity donation in your will so important?
