Occupational Therapy

About us

Occupational Therapy is a client centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation.

Our occupational therapists provide practical support to enable people to facilitate recovery and overcome any barriers that prevent them from doing the activities (occupations) that matter to them by modifying the occupation or the environment. This helps to increase people's independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life.

Our services are provided across a number of our sites.
