The Welfare Team aims to maximise income by ensuring that people claim all the benefits to which they are entitled to. All patients referred are contacted initially by telephone and will be offered a full benefits check (including means tested benefits) based on their individual circumstances. A Benefits Adviser will assist with completion of application forms for all benefits identified. The service is delivered by telephone, face to face within the St Barnabas Day Hospice settings or in exceptional circumstances a home visit can be arranged.
This service is available to anyone affected by cancer or other life limiting illnesses, their families and carers, who live in Lincolnshire.
Monday to Thursday 8.30 to 4.30 and Friday 8.30 to 12.30
