Yes, using the wmi module, but you'll have to search the Microsoft
documentation on how to enumerate services and their properties:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384642.aspx
The code might look like this, but the names may be wrong:

import wmi
import pythoncom
pythoncom.CoInitialize()
w = wmi.WMI()
for s in w.Win32_Services():
  print s
