Hospital Social Work Units
We provide a dedicated service to people who are admitted to hospital to support their discharge back to their own community. If you require a Social Worker to assess you for discharge, ward staff will request this. A Social Worker from your locality will visit you in hospital to progress your discharge.
If you require care at home support for discharge, the ward staff will request this support from the locality who will arrange your care. Once you are discharged home, a member of Social Work personnel will visit you at home to assess your care and support needs.
