Social Work

Our social workers work with patients, relatives and carers to help them cope with, and adjust to, their health condition.

The Rockingham General Hospital Social Work department provides a service via referral to all inpatient wards of the hospital, and continues to work with some patients and families after leaving the hospital.

Our services include:

  • planning and support with discharge from hospital
  • emotional and social support, practical assistance related to illness, treatment and life changes
  • crisis counselling and support
  • referral to community supports and agencies
  • referral to appropriate financial assistance agencies
  • support to access legal services.
