In this section
Our occupational therapy service is a single service spanning both the acute and community settings. It covers most clinical areas and inputs to multiple sites as well as patient's homes.
In order to provide a high quality occupational therapy service we are divided into clinical specialist teams. All teams are co-ordinated by senior staff who are specialists in their fields. They are responsible for the development of junior staff, students and assistants. All our qualified staff are registered with the Health Professions Council.
