Croydon & Lambeth Social Care

Social Services can help with a variety of issues:

  • Patients can self refer or refer relatives for a ‘care needs assessment’. This may result in carers, or a Package of Care (POC).
  • Occupational Therapy (OT) assessments can also be requested for home modifications – ramps, showers, toilet raises, grip bars etc.
  • Safeguarding concerns can also be raised here.
