Social Work Department Nepean Hospital
Social Work staff provide a range of services to health service consumers in both inpatient and community settings across NBMLHD.
Social Work is informed by principles of social justice and an understanding of the influence of systems on individuals, groups and communities.
Social Workers aim to create and strengthen the conditions that allow people to actively participate in their own healthcare by addressing challenges that enhance their wellbeing.
Social Workers may provide assistance through counseling, advocacy, information and education, practical and emotional support, and groupwork.
