 Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists work in the main and community hospitals and in community services. They work as one of the members of the team on the wards, in outpatient clinics within specialist teams or in teams offering support in the community.


What do occupational therapists do?

Occupational therapists work with people of all ages to achieve the most out of their life. They support people with physical or mental health needs which may result from illness or injury.

Our aim is to support people through occupational therapy to manage the activities important to them. This may include:

  • Planning a safe discharge from hospital
  • Helping people learn new or different ways of doing everyday tasks, such as getting dressed
  • Assessing end recommending equipment and adaptations
  • Managing your energy to help with fatigue, pain or breathlessness
  • Returning to work
  • Setting up rehabilitation programmes and helping set personal goals
  • Relaxation
  • Managing anxiety

Visiting update

To protect our patients, staff, visitors and the community, we are again restricting visitors to all our hospitals sites so please read our latest guidance for full details before coming to our hospitals.

The decision to restrict visitors during this time has been very difficult and made only after careful consideration as we witness wider social restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in light of the highly transmissible OMICRON variant.  The guidance will be reviewed regularly.
