Alder Hey nurse receives recognition for ‘tireless’ paediatric work

  • Comment

The head of nursing at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital on Merseyside has received an honorary fellowship from Edge Hill University.

Moya Sutton, executive nurse at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, received the honour in recognition of ‘her tireless work’ on behalf of the hospital, which has an educational and academic partnership with the university.

She said: ‘I am both honoured and humbled to receive this distinguished award from the University. It has been my privilege to lead the nursing body at Alder Hey which has involved training placements for more than 300 Edge Hill students each year.

‘We are particularly proud to have launched the collaborative Ambition Nursing Research programme which, for the first time, has introduced an internal structure for paediatric nursing research at the hospital,’ she added.

‘I look forward to many more collaborative years helping the University produce the high calibre nursing graduates that we have come to expect,’ she said.

Ms Sutton has 30 years’ extensive NHS experience, the past three of which have been at Alder Hey. She previously worked at St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, where she was assistant director of health and social care.
