– Who we refer to
The alcohol liaison service can arrange for referral to the community alcohol services in the Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre area for patients wishing further support and treatment for their alcohol issues once discharged from hospital.
In our local area the services are divided by postcode, those in postcodes FY1 to FY4 (Blackpool) and those in postcodes FY5 to FY8 (Fylde and Wyre).
Patients can also self refer into these services themselves at any time. Both Blackpool and Fylde and Wyre services have a community outreach service for those patients who may have issues attending services. Both outreach teams will see patients whilst they are in hospital providing a seamless transfer from hospital to community alcohol treatment.
