The Women's is committed to a social model of health because we know that social and environmental factors - and not just medical problems - affect a woman's health and wellbeing.
Language, social, cultural and spiritual support or having a place to stay; these can be just as important as medicine. Our care is provided not just by doctors, nurses and midwives, but also by specialist physiotherapists, dieticians, social workers, pastoral care workers, radiologists and pharmacists. We know that looking after the whole woman achieves the best health outcomes.
