Social Work

The social impact of a life-limiting illness can be considerable for our patients, their loved ones, friends and colleagues. People can have a range of needs for social care and support at different stages of illness.

Our Social Worker can support our patients and their carers and can provide advice and guidance on welfare benefits, emotional/psychological support and liaison with other local agencies/service providers.

It can be helpful to talk to someone who isn’t too close or emotionally involved in order to separate out the various issues and concerns and put a plan of action into place to address them.
