Who we are
Located in Wirral in North West England, we provide high-quality primary, community and public health services to the population of Wirral and parts of Cheshire and Liverpool.
We play a key role in the local health and social care economy as a high performing organisation with an excellent clinical reputation.
Our expert teams provide a diverse range of community health care services, seeing and treating people right through their lives both at home and close to home.
We employ almost 1,500 members of staff, 90% of who are in patient-facing roles. Our workforce represents close to 70% of the costs of the organisation and are our most important and valued resource. We have a turnover of approx. £70m.
What we do
Our services are local and community-based, provided from around 50 sites across Wirral, including our main clinical bases, St Catherine’s Health Centre in Birkenhead and Victoria Central Health Centre in Wallasey. We are also commissioned to deliver podiatry services outside of Wirral by West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (under an Any Qualified Provider contract).
Since October 2015 we have also provided integrated 0-19 services in Cheshire East comprising health visiting, school nursing, family nurse partnership and breastfeeding support services from 13 bases.
We have no inpatient beds.
Our services collectively delivered around 1.1 million face to face contacts during 2015-16.
A new divisional structure was implemented in 2015-16 to best align services with patient needs and the wider integration agenda.
Following the restructure, Trust services are grouped into three divisions: Adult & Community Services, Urgent and Primary Care, and Children & Wellbeing Services.
In addition, our clinical support services include: Infection Prevention & Control, Quality & Governance and Safeguarding. Further support services include Business Intelligence, Communications & Marketing, Estates Management, Finance, Human Resources, and Information Technology.
