Wirral Community NHS Foundation Trust was delighted to welcome Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu to St Catherine’s Health Centre today as part of a weekend of mission called ‘Believe in Birkenhead’.

 

The Archbishop was joined by The Bishop of Birkenhead, Keith Sinclair and The Bishop of Burnley, Philip North, and The Mayor of Wirral Cllr Ann McLachlan. Trust staff, patients and the public gathered in the main foyer to listen to the Archbishop talk before he toured the flagship health centre to meet staff and patients from a number of services including Heart Support Service, Podiatry and Adult Social Care.

 

Karen Howell, Chief Executive for Wirral Community NHS Foundation Trust, said:  “It gave me great pleasure to welcome the Archbishop and other esteemed guests to St Catherine’s Health Centre.

 

We were honoured to be a part of the Archbishop’s ‘weekend of mission’; and it really was wonderful to hear the Archbishop talk about how our NHS staff care for the whole person, and treat not only the body but the mind and soul.

 

I must thank the Reverend Richard Wood and Reverend James Terry who have been instrumental in enabling this visit to take place.

 

St Catherine’s Health Centre is a historic site and has a long association with delivering health services to the local community both for the people of Birkenhead and for Wirral. We are proud to be at the heart of this community and it is a pleasure to work in partnership with local people, schools, the community centre and St Catherine’s Church.”

 

The Archbishop’s visit to Birkenhead included schools, Cammell Laird, the Hive and family fun activities. Local churches organised a wide variety of events as part of this mission weekend which were open to all.
