The recently announced arrangement to manage community services in Liverpool is a short term arrangement, due to last six to nine months.

The management arrangement will manage the current Liverpool Community Healthcare Trust’s services until such time as the Trust is dissolved and will cover Board level and corporate services management. The current Director of Operations will continue to be the executive lead for management of the Trust's services to patients.

Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust will support the delivery of corporate services, which is an area of particular challenge for the Trust.
