We also provide community physical health services in Liverpool, Sefton, secure mental health services for the North West of England, the West Midlands and Wales and specialist learning disability services across Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside

We work closely with service users, carers and partner organisations, we've been able to make real improvements to our diverse range of services, from health and social care, right through to high secure provision. This passion to improve has been recognised by the CQC who have recently rated us “Good”.

Mersey Care’s vision and values drive our organisation and the way we work together to deliver services. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate during recruitment, and any subsequent employment with the Trust, that their behaviour supports our values of Continuous Improvement, Accountability, Respect, Enthusiasm and Support (CARES). The CQC stated “It was clear that most staff across the organisation understood, and were committed to, the vision and values of the organisation. These were well communicated and the work to win both hearts and minds was apparent”.

We are looking for an outstanding professional with strong leadership skills and up to date continuing professional development.
