Social services

We are a group of social workers, each of whom is responsible for a number of services on the three campuses of GZA Hospitals. We work together very closely.

How do we work?

  • You and/or your family can call on us directly. The social service might also contact you if the doctor or nursing staff ask us to do so.
  • We visit you in your room or in a separate meeting room.
  • We are bound by professional confidentiality.  
  • We often take a multi-disciplinary approach. This means that we consult with doctors, nurses, psychologists, the pastoral service, dieticians, etc.  
  • Outside the hospital, we consult with all sorts of services such as volunteer care providers, GPs and home nursing providers. If necessary, we organise a care consultation.
