Occupational Therapy 

Our occupational therapists help turn patients back into people, by helping with independence and improving the quality of your life.

An initial consultation helps address immediate concerns, followed up with an in-depth look at your circumstances to help you get the most out of everyday life, live comfortably at home and enjoy the things you used to do.

Physical help is often the first requirement and with adaptations or specialist equipment, we will help you with your independence and improve the quality of your life.

Alongside practical help our creative therapists offer activities to inspire and challenge you. These offer a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction as you create a lasting token of affection for your relatives and loved ones.

Most of the work done by our OTs is carried out in the community. We also support those in our inpatient unit who are returning home enjoy everything they used to do, using our extensive on-site store of mobility aids and adaptations.

How to be referred:

All referrals to Occupational Therapy must come from a health care professional involved in your care, for example a GP, District Nurse, or hospital consultant.
