Assessment Social Worker
A Day In The Life Of...
An Adult Assessment and CDG Social Worker
I’m Daniel, a Social Worker in the Adult Assessment and CDG (Care Delivery Group) Social Care Team. There are 8 Social Workers who each cover one of the 8 CDG areas in Nottingham. CDG Social Workers assess and co-ordinate appropriate care and support provisions for local citizens/patients and their families. Working in a CDG allows for Social Care integration with GP’s, Nurses and Neighbourhood Teams. We assess and support adults 18+ to transform the way that care is provided for people with long-term conditions; thereby enabling people with complex needs to live healthier, fulfilling and independent lives.
My daily routine
My day begins either based in a GP Practice or in Nottingham City Council’s joint-services buildings. I am predominantly office based however share the office with Care-Coordinators and Nurses; allowing for complex case discussions and multidisciplinary action planning. When not in the office, I am visiting local CDG citizen’s or undertaking assessments, supporting planning, multidisciplinary meetings, capacity assessments, safeguarding enquiries, best-interests decisions, hospital discharges, residential placements and much more. I am supported by a Senor Social Worker and fantastic multidisciplinary team.
