Occupational Therapist

Our occupational therapists enable patients to manage their day to day tasks and activities in a way that contributes to their physical, social and emotional well-being. We work with patients to address dysfunction using interventions that may look at altering the way a task is performed, adapting the physical environment, teaching the person a new skill or working with them to regain old ones.


Our role is to work with individuals in the community with an acquired neurological condition to help maintain or improve their functional ability and enhance quality of life. We look at all aspects of the individual’s life and help them to set goals which are both important and realistic. We involve families, carers or any agencies involved in the individuals care.

We work within a very supportive multidisciplinary team, working alongside Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Psychology, Neuro rehab nurse and technical instructors who support the whole rehabilitation process. There is a lot of variety in our work and we are lucky to be able to access support from social services charities and other outside agencies which enhances the individuals’ journey.

We are always looking at new and exciting ways to develop the service to ensure we offer individuals the best possible care and help them achieve their goals. As an Occupational Therapist within #TeamTameside you will be part of the patient’s therapeutic journey of improvement, helping them develop, recover, improve and maintain the skills needed for their daily life in line with their personal goals.
