Who can see a social worker:
- Inpatients and their relatives and carers
- Patients attending Ryde Hospital clinics such as Ryde Midwifery Group Practice.
You can also refer yourself, if you would like to see a social worker during your hospital admission.
Please speak to your doctor, nurse, ward clerk or other allied health professional to assist you.
Alternatively you, or your family or carers, may call the hospital (02 9858 7888) and ask to speak with the social worker for your ward.
You may also be referred by any member of the multidisciplinary team during your admission for a psychosocial assessment. The social worker will confirm with you that you are happy for the assessment to occur.
