Liverpool and South Sefton Community Services Policies and Procedures

This page provides links to policies created on 1 April 2018 in response to the acquisition of Liverpool Community Health. They provide policy guidance in relation to community services.

The date for review detailed on the front of all our policies does not mean that the document becomes invalid from this date. The review date is advisory and the organisation reserves the right to review a policy at any time due to organisation/ legal changes.  

Staff are advised to always check that they are using the correct version of any policies rather than referring to locally held copies. The most up to date version of all Trust policies can be  found on this webpage.
