A new welfare benefits information service is being piloted at Bridlington Hospital outpatients department. The service is an initiative developed in partnership between York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Department of Work and Pensions.  The service will be available on the first Thursday morning each month. It allows the opportunity for anyone affected by a long term illness to gain specialist advice on disability benefits and pensions.
