Occupational Therapy

A Day In The Life

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a science degree-based, health and social care profession, regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council. Occupational Therapy takes a “whole-person approach” to both mental and physical health and wellbeing and enables individuals to achieve their full potential.

OTs help people overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, ageing, or accident, taking into consideration all of the patient’s needs: physical; psychological; social; and environmental.

As part of Occupational Therapy Week 2019, our OTs have been talking about some of the #SmallChangesBigImpact they make.

At NCH&C we have 252 OTs, find out more about their roles and how they are making big differences to their patients lives by clicking on the links below:
