Liverpool, Sefton, Southport and Formby Community Services

Our staff deliver community health services to people in their own homes, in locations including health centres and clinics, NHS Walk-in Centres and an older adults intermediate care ward at Aintree University Hospital site.

We also deliver specialist dental health care, therapies, medicines management and nutrition and dietetics service. Our teams work closely with GPs and other health and social care services to ensure patients are cared for with the best support, closer to their home.

Our services enable people to be cared for in their own community and remain as independent as possible, rather than having to go to hospital. Many of these services are delivered out of hours, 24 hours, seven days a week.

Every year our staff deliver care to thousands of patients and at the same they will be talking to their families, carers and their communities. These hundreds of thousands of interactions mean that our staff are best placed to understand patients’ holistic health and social needs, including education, prevention and self care.
