Who We Are
Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust is at the heart of the delivery of healthcare within the communities of Liverpool and Sefton reaching a population of approximately 750,000 people.
We have a team of around 3000 staff – 80 percent of whom are practising health professionals including Nurses, Community Matrons, Health Visitors, GPs, Dentists, Dieticians, Podiatrists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists.
Our staff and services come into contact with hundreds of thousands of people in our local communities every year and therefore are often involved not just with patients, but also their families, carers and the communities in which they live. This means our staff can help to understand patients’ holistic health and social needs, including education, prevention, early detection and self-care.
What we do
Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust deliver community health services to people in their own homes, in over 70 locations including health centres and clinics, 5 Walk-in Centres and Bed Based Intermediate Care Centre. We also deliver specialist Dental Health Care, Therapies, Medicines Management and Nutrition & Dietetic Service.
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, with 24 hour, 7 day a week access.
Liverpool Community Health become an NHS Trust on 1st November 2010 and on the 1st of April 2011 Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust acquired community services for the majority of Sefton.
