Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapists work with people of all ages. We treat both physical and psychological conditions to help people overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, accident or ageing. Our aim is to enable people to lead their lives as independently as possible.
Following a referral the patient will be seen by an occupational therapist who will discuss their abilities prior to admission, identify their present abilities and establish a treatment plan to enable them to be discharged from hospital.

  • Patients
