Being physically well has an impact on your mental wellbeing. If you live in South Sefton your physical health services, previously provided by Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust are now being offered by Mersey Care. We’re also proud to be providing your community based addictions services across Sefton.
We aim to support and coordinate the health and wellbeing of Sefton residents. We want people to live independently at home for as long as possible, and where possible prevent them from being admitted to hospital.
Services to enable residents to be cared for within their community are delivered from health centres, community venues, patients’ homes and a rehabilitation ward in Aintree Hospital. These services include community matrons, district nursing, treatment rooms, speech therapy, physiotherapy, urgent care, palliative care, podiatry, adult diabetes and dietetics.
Our services are working with partners to deliver high quality flexible physical and mental health services that are wrapped around our patients and will make a real difference to the lives of local people.
We understand that when you have an addiction reaching out for help is often the most difficult step to take. We are here to support you with the issues associated with drug and alcohol misuse. Our service, Ambition Sefton, offers a wide range of recovery focused treatment pathways. Some of these are open access, where you just walk, others need a referral, by you or in some cases a health professional.
Ask your GP, practice nurse, other health professional or voluntary sector agency to refer you, or contact your local service:
