Occupational Therapy is a vast and varied profession and one of its many specialisms is wheelchair services. I assess and prescribe our service users for wheelchairs and other healthcare equipment on behalf of the NHS and social care organisations. I check previous assessments, current equipment, ongoing issues and their diagnosis before completing their referral.
No two days are the same as it’s such a varied and challenging role with the added value of working within a supportive team. I love it.
