Social care services

Our social care team can help you through periods of change or crisis by assessing your support needs and ensuring the right care and support is accessed at the right time.

Our social care team is made up of social workers and a benefits advisor. Working alongside you and your family, we can help you to resolve any psychological, social or financial concerns you may have.

How we can help:

  • Arrange funding and care providers to support you at home or in a care home.
  • Advocate for patients to get the support they need.
  • Support patients and families with challenging situations, such as financial worries or end of life care plans.
  • Provide emotional and social support to help patients and families adjust to their situation.
  • Signpost patients and families to other helpful services.
