Occupational Therapists contribute to the care and rehabilitation of both inpatients and outpatients. They work with patients of all ages who are born with, or have experienced a physical illness, mental illness or injury.

They concentrate on enabling patients to manage and maintain as much independence as possible within their daily living activities. Occupational Therapists work closely within the Multi-Disciplinary Team and liaise with patients, their families and carers where appropriate.
