Contact Cares Accident & Emergency Whiston Hospital

Together we will deliver the right care, in the right place, at the right time. Every time.

St Helens Council, the NHS and the CCG are working together in partnership to be proactive and to strengthen the help provided to people attending the Accident and Emergency department.

We are a team of social workers and assessment and review workers working within the A&E department at Whiston Hospital.

Working with all professionals across the A&E department, you will be referred by a health professional.

Should you require admission to hospital and support with your discharge, this will be provided by the Contact Cares, on-site Integrated Discharge Team.

Our role is to:

  • support people who do not require an admission to hospital for medical reasons
  • signpost to appropriate support in the community
  • support to more appropriate community based placements 


Our opening times are:

Monday to Friday - 8.30am to 8pm

Saturday and Sunday - 8.30am to 5pm
