Our Social Workers are here to support you and your family/whānau in our hospitals and in the community:
National travel coordinators are based at Grey Base Hospital and Buller Integrated Health Services. They can help patients pay for travel if they have been referred from a Specialist to another Specialist appointment and have to travel at least 80km.
Social workers can provide you with claim forms if you are eligible for assistance. For more information see the Ministry of Health website.
Our services are all free to people eligible for publicly funded health care in New Zealand. For more information see the Ministry of Health website.
You can phone us yourself or ask your doctor, nurse, hospital staff or a family member to contact the Social Work Service between 9am and 4:30pm on weekdays.
