Social Work in Hospitals

Social Work provides a service for in-patients and outpatients and will deal with any social problems arising directly as a result of admission to hospital, whether for accident or illness.

A service is provided to people of all ages and with a wide range of illness including people with surgical or medical problems, with mental health problems or with terminal illness.  They work not only with adults, but also with babies and children who have a need for hospital care, and their families.

They also plan and arrange provision of a variety of services to support the patient and family after discharge from hospital.
