Stockport liaison mental health service brings together some of our assessment services for:

  • 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.
