This includes:

You will continue to see the same health professionals in your local community and should not experience any disruption to services as a direct result of this transfer.


Transfer of care records

As part of the transfer, records of your care held by these services will also transfer to Wirral Community Health and Care. These will remain secure and confidential in line with Wirral Community Health and Care’s privacy policy. Access to your information is strictly controlled and only given to those who need to know. Everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential.


Why the 0-25 services are transferring

In Knowsley, 0-25 services are commissioned by Knowsley Council. In 2021, Knowsley Council invited interested organisations to bid for the contract to deliver 0-25 services in Knowsley.

This is a process that is carried out every few years in line with national regulations. Following this process, the contract was awarded to Wirral Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust.
