Occupational Therapy Roles

Occupational Therapists (OTs) are highly skilled practitioners working across the health and social care sector. They are regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT) is their professional body. 

They are educated at undergraduate level to work with physical, learning disability and mental health issues, and can potentially provide valuable support and resources to GPs facing increasingly significant pressures.  Despite this Occupational Therapists have not been routinely utilised within the Primary Care workforce despite their potential to provide valuable skills at this time of need.

As a result of a successful pilot in the Southampton and New Forest patch, some trailblazing OT roles in Primary Care are now starting to emerge across the Wessex Region.
