New provider takes over community health services

by Danielle Thompson (May 2021)

MERSEY Care NHS Foundation Trust is the new provider of community health services in Southport and Formby.

Following a rigorous procurement process NHS Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) awarded the contract to Mersey Care, who were already providing community services in Liverpool and south Sefton.

 Mersey Care has now taken  over services including blood testing, district nursing, falls prevention, diabetes care, therapies and rehabilitation and pain management for the whole of Sefton, which will provide continuity of care and a smooth transition of services for patients and community staff.

They took over from Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust, who chose not to continue providing community services.
