Social Work

About us

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.
