This page provides information for professionals only, if you are under the care of Mersey Care and need to speak to someone urgently or out of hours please call your mental health team or our switchboard on 0151 473 0303 who will be able to assist you.

If you're a GP wishing to make a referral to Mersey Care local mental health services please find all the information below.

We aim to offer simple referral routes that provide timely, quality assessments, over a 24 hour period, with senior clinicians leading local assessment teams. 

Our assessment teams provide triage, assessment and signposting for new referrals. 

The team you contact will depend on the location of your practice and the service you are contacting or referring into. We will do our best to make the referral process as straight forward as possible.
