Promoting dignity, worth and diversity – care and support to patients
Social Work and Integrating Care consists of three departments; and they are Social Work, Transition Care (TCP) and Aged Care Assessment Service (MEACAS).
These departments provide patients and their families/carers with high quality care and support from the point of admission to hospital to their discharge back to their homes and the community.
