Mersey Care has launched a number of different services to help patients and service users during the Covid-19 outbreak and lockdown.
The Trust has launched a variety of 24/7 phone and online psychological support services and materials to help those struggling to cope with isolation guidelines.
Children of Mersey Care's nurses feature in a new short film that taps into the nation’s gratitude to health workers helping in the Covid-19 crisis, which premiered just before tonight’s (2 April) national ‘Clap for Carers’ event.
The Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis has caused unprecedented demand on services, so we have reluctantly taken the decision to suspend or revise services according to NHS England and Public Health England guidance.
Please note that many of our services are changing during the current pandemic.
Before you set out to visit Mersey Care services, please phone ahead to check the latest. Please bear with us if things are different from our usual ways of working. All visitors and out patients attending NHS sites are required to wear a mask.
Exclusions The circumstances in which a person has a reasonable excuse include those where they cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering or because of any physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability (within the meaning of section 6 of the Equality Act 2010(7)), or without severe distress.

We’ve had to suspend visiting arrangements and have alternative online methods where practical. Our first duty is to keep all our patients safe and well cared for.
