The CLIC Sargent Social Work Team can offer social, emotional and practical support to help minimise the impact of the illness and treatment. It works only with children, young people, and adults under the age of 25. As well as providing individual support to patients and their families the team runs a variety of group events for patients and family members.
If you are under 25 years old and need hospital treatment during an important time in your education, for example when you are studying for exams, you can contact the CLIC Sargent social work team. Together with the hospital school staff they can provide advice and information as well as liaise with schools or colleges on your behalf. Any pupil or student on treatment is entitled to 'special consideration'.
You can call us from 10am-1pm to speak to a counsellor for confidential support.
