Occupational Therapy & Physiotherapy
The department is welcoming and friendly, and has strong links with our local Community Services and Social Services partners. We constantly review our staffing skill mix and structure to meet the changing needs of the local population accessing our services, alongside the development needs of staff.
We aim to deliver the best quality care and develop effective working relationships, both within and outside the Trust for our patient’s benefit. Our Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists work together. The Integration brings with it a number of benefits including: patients receive more coordinated treatment packages and better quality of care, both professions benefit from a greater breadth of learning. Core knowledge and skills between the professions are identified and training addressed consistently and more efficiently across both groups.
