Who We Are
Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust is at the heart of the delivery of healthcare within the communities of Liverpool reaching a population of approximately 500,000 people.
We have a team of around 1700 staff – 80 percent of whom are practising health professionals including Nurses, Community Matrons, Health Visitors, 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 60 locations including health centres and clinics, four 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.
Our teams care for patients in their own homes, health clinics, and in a range of other local community premises such as children’s centres, community centres and schools. We also work closely with GPs and with other health and social care services to ensure patients are cared for with the best support, closer to their home.
Wherever we work, we support our patients to help them plan, manage and adjust to changes in their health and to live as independently as possible. Each patient is an individual with their own needs and circumstances, so our clinical teams aim to deliver flexible patient-centred approaches to meet these specific individual needs.
