You will have noted from Trust communications that the Trust had moved from four clinical divisions to three.  As part of this redesign of services there are two key changes for this Division, the first being the name of the Division which has now changed to the Secure Care Division. 

The second change is we have welcomed the community learning disability (LD) and integrated support function (ISF) services covering Warrington, Halton, St Helens and Knowsley who will join our Liverpool and Sefton community LD and ISF teams.  Over the coming months we will align all LD community teams in to one service line including Byron Ward (LD Assessment and Treatment).  Please welcome this new group of staff to our Division.

I will continue to update on progress as these new teams are integrated into our services.

I appreciate how busy services are currently and would like to thank you for your continued hard work and support.

Kind regards

Steve Newton

Operational Director

Secure Care Division
