Admission to a hospital setting can be a very stressful and difficult time for patients and their family.
The hospital social work department supports people to deal with personal and social issues and offers supportive counselling, support and information to individuals, partners, carers and families.
We offer a comprehensive range of services to address the emotional and psychosocial aspects of health, including:
Hospital ward social work services and cancer services.
You can self-refer if you are a patient in the service or contact your treating team to make a referral.
Transport difficulties are a common theme for many patients and families. There are very limited resources available to support the growing need. Transport and accomodation schemes are available to certain patients. More information on eligibility for the scheme can be found on the links below.
We value feedback from patients, family members and carers.
