New Wirral All Age Disability Service launched by CWP
A brand new All Age Disability service has been launched in Wirral, aiming to improve experiences for people in the area with a disability or mental health condition.
The service will be provided by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP), and has brought together teams historically split between CWP and Wirral Council, under one banner, ensuring a more streamlined and person-centred experience.
Those who access the service will be supported to live as independently as possible and enjoy the best quality of life they can, with collaborative support from both social care and healthcare staff.
The service, known as the All Age Disability service, will be formed by the following integrated teams The Children with disabilities service, the integrated health and social care adult and older people’s community mental health teams and the integrated disability service.
Suzanne Edwards associate director of operations at CWP said: “This is truly an exciting development for the population of Wirral. The Integration of these services will ensure that both social care and health staff work to common outcomes and make the best use of their skills and resources. This will lead to greater benefits and better outcomes for those who access the service.”
