Place-based partnerships


NHS Cheshire and Merseyside will arrange for some of its functions to be delivered and decisions about NHS funding to be made in the region’s nine Places – Cheshire East, Cheshire West, Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens, Warrington, Wirral.

While NHS Cheshire and Merseyside will retain overall accountability for NHS resources deployed at Place-level, Place-based partnerships – led by Place Directors – will have freedom to design and deliver services according to local need.
