Some of our mental health services in Stockport have been brought together to form Stockport liaison mental health service. 

This includes services that assess and support:

  • Alcohol issues
  • Older people (separate from the community older people’s team – please see below)
  • Adult accident and emergency

We will continue to support people who attend A&E, or who are on a ward, at Stepping Hill Hospital who have a range of mental health issues.

Bringing these services together aims to make sure people can access the right support, from the right professional as quickly as possible.


Referral information 

We accept referrals from hospital staff at Stepping Hill Hospital.

If you are referring a patient from A&E you should continue to bleep 1475.

If you are referring a patient from a ward, you should fax the referral form to 0161 716 5889.

The new referral form has been shared previously and you can click here to download a copy (opens as a Word document)  

If you have any questions, please contact the Stockport liaison mental health service on the number below.

The changes do not affect the community mental health liaison service for older people (based at The Meadows), which will continue to provide the same support in the same way. Click here for information about this team.
