Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust has set communication standards that reflect its purpose and values. These values are part of our corporate identity and shape how people think and feel about us.

As an NHS body, we produce written information for a diverse audience. Clear and consistent written communication are an example of how we work and show that we are committed to meeting the needs of our stakeholders.

This guide is designed to make sure that all written communications from the Trust are presented in a consistent house style. It gives advice about how to develop and write content for all the printed and online material we produce, from emails and letters to reports and presentations.
