Supporting patients to leave hospital 

About us

The social work department helps with discharge planning for elderly and disabled patients into the community.

We have two borough council social services teams:

  • Lambeth older people and disability team
  • Southwark hospital discharge team north.


Referrals are made by staff working on our hospitals or community service teams. We do not accept referrals from GPs.
