Social workers are available in the hospital to discuss any non-medical problems resulting from your admission. They may arrange placements in residential and nursing homes and other complex care packages. Community care co-ordinators can assess for and arrange community services for patients being discharged from Woodend Hospital, to all areas. They can be contacted through the nurse in charge of the ward.
