Celebrating the work of our occupational therapists in OT Week
Our 230 therapists help people live life to the fullest after an illness
This Occupational Therapy Week 2021 (Nov1-7) Oxford Health is celebrating the work, committment and dedication of Oxford Health’s highly-skilled therapists working at the Trust.
It is a science-driven, evidence-based profession that enables people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health and prevent – or live better with – illness, injury or disability.
Occupational therapists help people of all ages who have physical, mental or social problems – as a result of accident, illness or ageing – to do the things they want to do.
Our therapists are embedded in a range of teams and work in communities make life-changing differences to the patients in our care.
Therapy is provided in a range of places including:
- Community hospitals and community services
- Community Mental Health Teams
- Inpatient Units
- Outreach Teams
- Early Intervention Services
- Forensic Mental Health Services
- Child and Adolescent Services
Emma Croft, Oxford Health’s Allied Health Professions lead, commented: “OT week is an opportunity to celebrate and highlight the contribution of occupational therapists to health and social care services.
“This year the theme is OTs for equity. Occupational Therapists have a key role in addressing inequalities and having a positive impact for the patients and service users we work alongside. I would encourage all of our OT’s to take some time to celebrate your contribution to Occupational Therapy and I want to thank you for your continued hard work in caring for all our patients. “
