The Social Work Department at RVI Hospital can work with you to help prepare you for leaving hospital. For people who live in Newcastle, the social workers can:

  • carry out assessments to see if you are eligible for care and support
  • arrange care and support if you need it
  • help you to get short term support to help you recover
  • give you information and advice about options for your care if you are organising it yourself
  • give you information about prevention services, like telecare

This team works for Newcastle City Council.
