Our services

 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

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here.
