What is General Practice social work?
General practice social workers have joined the multidisciplinary team within your GP practice. Your social wellbeing affects how you feel about yourself, how well you function and the overall quality of your life. Issues which affect your social wellbeing may have a significant impact on your physical or mental health.
Social workers can discuss any problems you have and explore what is important to you. They will provide you with practical advice, help and support in order to address these problems.
Where the social worker feels that you may benefit from other services, they may work with other people or groups in your local community that can support your needs.
