The social workers at Women’s Hospital provide social work services to all patients on the hospital wards and in the outpatient clinics.
Social work is part of the whole in the hospital’s care and rehabilitation operations. You can discuss the issues affecting your individual situation with a social worker. A social worker will support you so that you receive social services and benefits in a timely manner during pregnancy and after childbirth, and at different stages of illness and rehabilitation.
We offer assistance, e.g. in the following matters:
- sickness allowance
- family benefits, maternity and paternity allowance
- travel and medical expenses
- means-tested income support and housing
- patient’s concerns and life situation, and support for families with children
- crisis situation and psychosocial support
- mental health and substance abuse services, also during pregnancy
- services for victims of crime
- foreigners, undocumented persons, and clarifications related to domicile issues
- notification of the need for support for a person in need of specific support
- appeals and complaints.
If necessary, the social worker will cooperate with various other actors. The services of health-related social work are available to all patients, families and relatives, and are confidential and free of charge. You can contact the social worker either by phone or through the nursing staff.
Each ward and outpatient clinic has a designated social worker, who can be reached on weekdays during office hours. You can contact the social worker yourself or it can be done by a family member or by the nursing staff who are caring for you.
