Social Care Service

The Social Care Service works across all areas of the Hospital and with staff, patients, their carers and families and external agencies. The team has a key role in the safety, protection and safeguarding of children and adults. 

One of the main responsibilities for the service is the safe facilitation of family and child visits to patients at the Hospital. The team is a main point of contact for families, friends and carers and works closely with the family support team and volunteer befriender service at the Hospital. The Social Care Service works to empower patients and provide advocacy and advice over issues regarding patient wellbeing, human rights, equality and diversity and social justice.
