What we do

We provide a range of health services to support people living in our communities to live life well.

Welcome to North West Boroughs Healthcare (formerly known as 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust). We deliver a range of health services across a population of more than 3.5 million people to support our local communities to live life well. 

These include community-based physical health services, as well as mental health and learning disability services.

We deliver community and inpatient mental health services across Halton, Knowsley, St Helens, Warrington and Wigan, as well as services for people with mental vulnerabilities who are involved with the criminal justice system across Greater Manchester.

We also provide physical health services for children and adults in Halton, Knowsley, Sefton and St Helens. These community-based services are a big part of what we do and include children’s nursing and therapy services, wellbeing services, podiatry, physiotherapy, falls prevention, end of life care and district nursing.

We are passionate about integrating mental health and physical health services to deliver whole person care which supports our service users with all aspects of their health and wellbeing.

We employ more than 3,800 staff across a range of professions and we are passionate about providing outstanding patient care that aligns with NHS England’s 6 Cs – care, compassion, commitment, courage, communication and competence. 

In 2016, we were proud to be rated as ‘good’ by the Care Quality Commission across all five key domains – ‘caring’, ‘responsive’, ‘effective’, ‘well-led’ and ‘safe’. We are especially proud to have been rated as ‘outstanding’ under the ‘caring’ domain for our community-based physical health services.
