Overview

St Catherine's Health Centre

Wirral Community NHS Foundation Trust provides high quality primary, community and public health services to the population of Wirral and parts of Cheshire and Liverpool.

We are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) without conditions, and play a key role in the local health and social care economy working in partnership to provide high quality, integrated care to the communities we serve.

Our expert teams provide a diverse range of community healthcare services, seeing and treating people right through their lives both at home and close to home. We have an excellent clinical reputation employing over 1,500 members of staff, 90% of who are in patient-facing roles. Our workforce represents over 70% of the costs of the organisation, and are our most important and valued resource.

Each year we have over 1.1 million face to face contacts and our services are delivered in many settings: clinics, health centres, GP surgeries, schools, prisons and people’s homes.

We serve a Wirral population of around 321,000 residents across 145,000 households. It is very likely that most will come into contact with our services at some point either as a patient, carer, service user or relative of a patient or as one of our members or volunteers.

Not unlike most places in the country, the local health and social care economy is faced with the challenge of meeting rising demand, within finite finances. This is driving the growth in provision of community health services ensuring we play a vital part in enabling people to live more healthy, active and independent lives, reducing unnecessary hospital admissions.
