Hospital Social Work Day – 7th December 2016

Posted By : swr_2722

Following last year’s MCA unwise decision day the APSW Network have agreed to launch and support a national Hospital Social Work Day.

This day will be a great opportunity to raise awareness of acute hospital based social work and the exceptional work, practice and passion that this group of social workers bring to what is an increasingly tough role. This day is to highlight and thank these social workers who work in this role.

There will be a number of stories, blogs, community care articles etc. shared via Twitter on the day, the hash tag to look out for it #HospSW16. On the day we will have some great support from Community Care, Kings Fund, DH, Skills for Care and many others.

Across the country on a local level PSW’s and their hospital teams, will come together and share what they are doing to thank and celebrate their Hospital SW staff. This is a great opportunity to raise the profile of Social Work.

Let us know on ways you would like to get involved.
