Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy provides practical support to enable people to facilitate recovery and overcome any barriers that prevent them from doing the activities that matter to them. This helps to increase people's independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life. Occupational therapists play a critical role in helping people of all ages to overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, ageing or accident so that they can carry out everyday tasks or occupations. This could be essential day-to-day tasks such as self-care, work or leisure.

The Occupational Therapy departments at both Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital consist of skilled professionals who work holistically with each individual, with the aim to maintain functional independence, facilitate safe hospital discharges and to ensure on-going support in the community where required.

The Occupational Therapists work in a wide range of specialist areas within the trust which include the emergency department, medicine and surgery (including amputees), orthopedics, rehabilitation, stroke, re-ablement, pediatric services, intensive care, oncology and rheumatology outpatients.
